Worcester is the most widely collected of 18th century English porcelain factories. In production for over half a century.
The factory produced a huge variety of products and styles. This gives collectors a fantastic catalog ranging from the very rare to the surprisingly common.
The Worcester factory was founded at Warmstry House in 1751. The very earliest wares take their decoration style influence from Chinese and Japanese porcelain.
The first period from the factory’s foundation in 1751 to 1783 is often called the Dr. Wall period after one of its founders. In 1783 the factory was acquired by Thomas Flight, the factory assumed various names and guises until 1862 when it became the Royal Worcester Porcelain Company, a name now owned by The Portmeirion Group.
The set is in excellent antique condition for it age, some pieces do not ring but there is no sign of crazing. The cream jug has a barely noticeable repair (likely to be a manufactured flaw) where the handle attaches to the body. There is fine kiln dust embedded in the glaze of the slop bowl, the saucers, and coffee cup, this is typical of pieces manufactured at this time. The sugar bowl has a glaze fault on the body near the foot rim likely to be a manufactured flaw. The set has very light rubbing on the pink ground and gold as would be expected from use, (please note four saucers are heavily worn)
