Foreign

  • 1890 -1914 every item imported in the UK had to be marked FOREIGN.

  • From 1914 all items imported in the UK had to be marked with MADE IN + THE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN

  • From 1921 on all items imported in the UK had to be marked with MADE IN + THE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE (compare Nippon that should be written as Japan).

History
The majority of the once flourishing UK pottery industry is history. Most factories are demolished, some still exist as ghostly ruins, and a few have a second life as a pottery museum. Of course there are pottery’s that understood the needs of the 21st centry and its customers of today and still exist. But the pottery industry as such is gone. Most UK porcelain is made in China. Without the stamp Foreign! From one of the remaining pottery's you see an impression.
