About Chown China
The Chown family have been working together for over 35 years producing bone china ware of the highest quality from their own factory, firstly in Stoke-on-Trent with Caverswall China Co Ltd which John founded from scratch in 1973, and then for twenty years now in Cornwall (where the clay comes from). Chown China (1985- ) is a partnership, with John (Father) and Stewart (Son) as Partners. Stewart joined John within a year or so of Caverswall being started, and soon became Manager in charge of the Printing Department. He is now respected as one of the finest ceramic printers in the Industry. Prior to 1973 John was Technical Manager at Spode for five years, and prior to that he was a Head of Research for Royal Doulton.
