Antique Bone China Query - Artone Bone China - "made in England":
Can you tell me anything about this company called Artone Bone China? Thanks!Answer by Peter (Admin)
Hello Dear Visitor
Thank you for taking the time to ask your query about Artone Pottery. Artone China began in 1946 in Burslem, Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire, England. I don't have any record of it ever closing down, so it may well still be operating. You could check by looking in the Stoke phone book.
A small company, they specialized in hand painted bone china 'studio' type items such as flowers, fancies and figures. Their characteristic potters mark is a the outline of a painter's palette with a printed mark within.
I enclose a photo above of some typical Artone wares.
Hope this helps with your query.
