In 2001 the Museum received a collection of pottery from the Staffordshire Tableware factory prior to its sale. This included a range of Biltons’ wares.
A further large collection of Biltons' pottery and archive material was donated to the museum in November 2002. Some of this will be exhibited in the ceramics gallery in 2003
