Carlton Heraldic China relating to World War One
December 2014


Throughout 2014, to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the start of World War One, I wrote and posted twelve 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 by 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.
