Shelton, Hanley. New Hall was one of the first porcelain works in the UK and here during the period 1781-1812 examples of experimental hard paste porcelain ware were made: all of the New Hall examples in this collection belong to this period. It was only after 1812 that the works began to produce the classic English bone china. Photographed without a candle so the full design can be seen, a candle will be added before delivery.
