From around 1775 to 1799, at Caugh­ley, near Brose­ley in Shrop­shire, Am­brose Gal­limore and Thomas Turner pro­duced some of the finest soft-paste porce­lain made in Eng­land in the 18th Cen­tury. Many shapes and pat­terns were pro­duced, mainly use­ful wares such as tea and din­ner ser­vices that would be used in the house­holds of the mid­dle classes. To­day, Caugh­ley porce­lain is highly col­lectable and much sought af­ter.

Chris Brown, from El­land near Hal­i­fax, is a renowned ex­pert, writ­ing and lec­tur­ing on the sub­ject. He col­lects mainly poly­chrome Caugh­ley and is an ac­tive mem­ber of the Caugh­ley So­ci­ety, cu­rat­ing the Caugh­ley in Colour ex­hi­bi­tion at the Iron­bridge Gorge Mu­se­ums. He was also one of the au­thors of the So­ci­ety’s Caugh­ley Blue and White Pat­terns Book and wrote a pa­per: Joshua Cristall, a China Painter.
