Staffordshire Cara China vintage costume jewelry
In the middle of the last century, many English porcelain companies produced not only china, but also fine high-quality costume jewelry. Crafted from bone china, the colorful, hand-painted jewelry was unlike the usual ones made of metal, bronze, sterling silver or gold. A wearable art, this jewelry is very popular both in the last century and now. Even made 60-70 years ago, the colorful floral design brooches, earrings and bracelets have survived to this day.
Among more than a hundred companies producing such jewelry, the most famous are Aynsley China Co, Coalport China Co., Crown Staffordshire China Co., Bone China Crafts Co., Paragon China Co., and Cara China Co.
The history of the English company Cara China spans no more than 3 decades, from 1945 to 1970. Located in the county of Staffordshire, the company produced dazzling array of color porcelain costume jewelry. Traditionally, craftsmen labeled the products “Cara China Staffordshire Made in England”, and also sold them in a branded velvet boxes.
