The Blue Chip Specialists

A chance acquisition of some plates made in England, blue and white views of the United States and Canada, semi-started a collection and eventually a business.

For John Hogan, it brought back memories of his childhood. After a year's intensive study, research and perusal of every book that they could find on the chinaware of the period, the pair opened a specialty antique shop.
