Paragon International Collectors Club - Collectables

The Paragon International Collectors Club was established at the end of 1997. It was founded by Stefanie Austin with the aim of bringing together collectors to provide a forum for the ready interchange of information and to a foster an enhanced general awareness of Paragon china.

Paragon manufactured a wide range of china products and all the current members are avid collectors of at least one type. Some are interested in the tableware of the pre1920 Star China Company period while others prefer the Art Deco designs of the '20s and '30s. The figurines produced from the late '40s to the early '60s have their devotees while other enthusiasts confine their interests to the Paragon commemorative designs.

However, all members are united in one respect. Every one firmly believes that, despite royal patronage and the fact that many of the designs easily surpass, in both artistic merit and execution, other more collectable china of the first half of the 20th century, Paragon china has not yet received the recognition it justly deserves.

It is well known that Paragon has enthusiasts in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Japan so, though based in the UK, membership is open to collectors worldwide. Currently, subscribing members enjoy free entry to Club meetings, access to an e-mail news/discussion group and an online 'trading post', a Club Journal and Newsletters. These contain news, articles and many useful facts not available elsewhere in print. For instance, much of the new information about Paragon, that researchers are continually bringing to light, appears nowhere else and is, to date, exclusive to Club members.
