JACKSON & GOSLING, GROSVENOR CHINA: AN UNFAMILIAR NAME AMONGST TODAY'S GENERATION

By: John Hogan

In today's world of disposable paper cups and people on the run, many of the younger folk seem to have little or no familiarity with some of the older bone china manufacturers of England.

Names that seem to be a little more familiar are Royal Albert, Paragon and Queen Anne. These three companies seem to have dominated the Canadian market for a span of sixty years or so. Fancy jewelry shops such as Birks and Mappins of Canada always allotted a china display section to boast their pretty English bone china imports. Usually there was a bone china cup & saucer section specifically to attract the buyers who wanted to decorate their pretty china cabinets and curios.

There were numerous English bone china makers that produced exquisite patterns and shapes in the form of the teacup & saucer. Let us not forget some of them. They deserve some reverence. Amongst them, Jackson & Gosling is one who stood out for their shapes and colors.

Grosvenor China was the trade name or trademark of a firm called Jackson & Gosling (Ltd) of Grosvenor Works, Longton, Stoke-on-Trent. It was first established 1866 in Fenton and later had a Longton address from 1909. Copelands purchased Grosvenor China and the combined company was incorporated as W. T. Copeland & Sons Ltd in 1932. Jackson & Gosling China Company closed in 1969 and the trade name was no longer used.
