Admire (or Buy) Staffordshire China at Ferry Hill in New Hope

December 16, 2014 12:47 pm

Some of the East Coast’s most educated antiques buyers know that Ferry Hill is a hidden treasure that often yields incredible finds. Historians know that New Hope was originally known as Coryell’s Ferry, where passengers crossed the Delaware River.

Patrons of Ferry Hill rave about the blue and white Staffordshire china that it stocks. These iconic pieces, made in the United Kingdom starting in the 1720s, are a favorite of collectors for their detailed glazes. Many of the pieces on display at Ferry Hill use the technique of “transfer ware,” where an engraved copper print is used to print on ceramic in multiple colors to create near-photo-quality reproductions. Even if you don’t intend to buy anything, the store is a virtual museum of gorgeous pieces. One note: if you think that the price on an item is a little high, the owner has been known to negotiate with customers who approach him politely.
