Beauties of Swansea China. Apropos of Welsh ceramics, there has been (says "The Collector's Illustrated Circular") nuite a little boom in Swansea and Nantgarw during the present season. In the early part ( last century, when there was quite a craze fo, porcelain decorated with roses, Nantgarw was far away ahead of its contemporaries in < the excellence of this particular decoration, The reason was that William Billingsley, one of the. best painters of the flower whc. ever lived, was superintending the -works at. Swansea, and here he, together with an equally exquisite painter cf flowers, Pollard, continued to decorate the delicate, soft paste, which, when finished, ■ could compare not unfavourably with the production at Sevres. It is the work of these two men so eagerly j sought. The, merit of their art .is that their roses and wild flowers were real blooms, fair copies o' nature, and not the conventional, hideous, nondescript thing which other norcelain i painters considered good enough for "crockery."
