Carlton Ware World

Carlton Heraldic China relating to World War One



Throughout 2014, to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the start of World War One, Carlton Ware World featured 12 monthly articles on Carlton Heraldic China relating to the conflict. You can view these from links below.

These articles present the most comprehensive review of war related Carlton Heraldic China ever produced. In total, the twelve articles show 59 different models.

I am particularly grateful for the help given to me in two books on Heraldic China.  The first is Crested China - the History of Heraldic Souvenir Ware by Mrs. Sandy Andrews, published in 1980, an extraordinary body of work. The second is Take me back to Dear Old Blighty by Robert Southall, published in 1982.  Harvey Pettit - January 2015.
