It was Adolphus Goss who first had the idea of applying coats of arms to pieces of porcelain produced by his father's pottery and from 1880 until after the First World War the demand for such holiday souvenirs fuelled an enormous industry. Now heraldic china is once again keenly collected and this book explains how the china was made, what potteries produced it and how to identify and date individual pieces.show more
