Maling Collectors' Society

Maling factory - click to enlargeMaling pottery was produced, first in Sunderland and later in Newcastle upon Tyne, from 1762 to 1963. Initially, there is little to distinguish Maling ware from that of any other local factory. However, the discovery of a way to make marmalade jars and other containers by machine brought significant income and the opportunity to expand the production of decorated wares - sometimes under the trade name of "Cetem" (a phonetic spelling of the initials CTM - CT Maling & Sons).
Though Maling produced pottery rather than china, for a brief time (circa 1900) porcelain items were imported in "blank" form, to be decorated in the factory and sold as Maling ware.
Although Maling is not, perhaps, as well known to antique collectors as other English potteries, the best of Maling's ware can easily stand comparison with the products of their more famous contemporaries.

The Collectors' Society is a research body which aims to rediscover as much as possible about the history and wares of this prolific company. If you or a member of your family have a connection with Maling, we would be pleased to hear from you.
