Stronsay China

This company blossomed briefly but seems to have left no trace on this site or on the Internet generally. I think it suffered from its remoteness, in terms of sources of raw materials and potential market, but I really don't know anything about it. Others may be able to supply some info.

I have 2 pieces of Stronsay China, one is cup-size, decorated with spring flowers, snowdrope etc. The other is a mug decorated with poppies. I also have a white mug with runic letters, saying ORKNEY around the top edge and ORKNEY CHINA on the bottom.
