Welcome to The Raven Mason Collection
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. In recent years their sister, Dame Kathleen Raven, also made generous bequests and the entire collection has recently been redisplayed.
The collection is available by appointment to any interested party and will be of particular relevance to students with an interest in:
The Staffordshire Ceramics Industry and its History
Economic & Social History
