New Hall - (Ceramics Porcelain England)

New Hall - (Ceramics, Porcelain, England) The factory founded about 1781 by a group of Staffordshire potters who manufactured hard-paste porcelain to the formula that Richard Champion had used at Bristol and which he had got from Cookworthy. From about 1810 onwards bone-china was made. New Hall porcelain is not so esteemed as Plymouth and Bristol. Early wares are often decorated in the Chinese manner; elaborate painting and gilding is typical. The letter `x' accompanied by a number was the usual porcelain mark; the name `New Hall' encircled was applied to bone-china.
