The Stoke-on-Trent Backstamp Club
Welcome to the Backstamp Club. Membership is both free and open to anyone in the world. Membership entitles you to the freedom to turn over cups, plates, saucers wherever you are in the world.
All Backstamp Club members will receive your own personal Backstamp Club card. We will also keep you up to date with regular eshots on what is happening in the Club and you will be able to enter various competitions throughout the year with chances to win some great prizes.
The Backstamp Club is built solidly on pride and the roots of the Club go as far back as the turn of the century when local author Arnold Bennett was an international celebrity. It was Bennett who was once challenged for turning over a saucer, and had to explain that it is possible to recognise anyone who comes from Stoke-on-Trent, because of their automatic desire to turn over a up to check not only whether it was "Made in Stoke-on-Trent" but also the name of the manufacturer on its backstamp.
So please do tell your friends and relatives at home and abroad to turn over a new leaf and apply for membership to this non-exclusive club.
