Learn about Lowestoft Porcelain

Lowestoft is a town in Suffolk, and a porcelain works was established there in 1757 by three local residents after a discovery of clay in the area, supposedly using a formula supplied by the Bow porcelain factory in the London suburb of Bow, about 5 miles east of central London. The works produced soft paste porcelain, with the emphasis on Chinese inspired decoration with underglaze blue in the early years. In later years a wider range of decorative themes were used. The factory ceased production in 1802, but a company using the name "Lowestoft Porcelain 2000" was established in that year to make porcelain in the old Lowestoft styles, shapes and colours.
