Antique Davenport Porcelain 1794-1887


This important Staffordshire factory was situated at Longport and run by John Davenport. Originaly an earthenware pottery, it began to make good-quality porcelain of hybrid hard-paste type c.1800, and from about 1810 onwards it concentrated on bone china tea and dessert services.

At the beginning of the 19th century the factory was very fashionable and numbered the Prince Regent among its customers. Pieces from this period are of superb quality, rivalling Spode, Swansea or any other English manufacturer.

From around 1825 the forms were influenced by rococo revival and many of its basic shapes are close to the Coalport designs of the period.

The factory continued to flourish and by 1840 Davenport & Co. were retailing from 82 Fleet Street, London and had warehouses in Liverpool, Lubeck and Hamburg and become manufacturers to William IV and Queen Adelaide.

Davenport porcelain body and decoration are of a very high standart and many unmarked pieces can be found incorrectly labelled "Rockingham". The factory produced some especially elegant Empire-style teawares in forms that seem to be unique.
