Lowestoft - (Ceramics Porcelain England)

Lowestoft - (Ceramics, Porcelain, England) This porcelain factory founded in 1757 and continued in production till about 1800. The Bow-like paste contains bone-ash. Under-glaze blue was the favoured decoration and the Chinese influence is obvious. Small pieces, souvenirs for visitors ('A Trifle from Lowestoft'), were made in considerable quantity. There is no Lowestoft mark as such, but the marks of several factories were used, especially Worcester. 'Oriental Lowestoft' is, of course, a complete misnomer as applied to porcelain made in China for the European market and has nothing to do with this factory.
