Heraldic Pottery - Formed in 1998 by two friends with big backgrounds in ceramics. Created from redundancy as a result of cheap Chinese imports flooding the market with substandard pottery item. The company now has acquired Dutches China and the factory, kiln and vintage premises. This makes Heraldic one of the last largest fine china manufacturers in Staffordshire, protecting a prestigious skilled trade. This is why we chose them to create our Fine China. We are strong believers in protecting the skilled trade and not have it die out due to cheap imports. Cheap imports are damaging to communities, families and the environment.
