Rode Porcelain

The important Derby botanical service decorated by William Billingsley and the collection of teapots are among the highlights of the large collection of English porcelain from the leading factories of the second half of the eighteenth century including examples of Bow, Chelsea Derby and Worcester.  There is also a unique collection of the seven pots designed by Walter Crane for Maw & Co in 1890.  As a young man Walter Crane often stayed at Rode and there are other examples of his work to be viewed.
