The Shrophire Gallery’s Ceramics

Coalport JugThe first locally made pots date back to Prehistoric times with large scale production taking off in the Roman period and flourishing during the Industrial Revolution.

Our ceramics display explores this story through the people who made some of Shropshire’s most famous tea sets and tiles.  Companies such as Caughley, Coalport and Maw’s & Co. sold their wares around the world.  Each piece is a unique record of the skills of the local people who designed, moulded, and decorated these pieces.
