Welcome to The Raven Mason Collection

birdfront Neapolitan Ewer This important ceramic collection was lovingly created by brothers Ronald William and John Mason Raven; it is housed in Keele Hall within the University. It contains many important pieces outlining the development of Mason ceramics in Staffordshire from the beginning of the nineteenth century.
