Discontinued Collectibles Guide

Royal Worcester Collectibles & Tableware

Around the middle of the 18th century a physician named Dr John Wall and William Davis and apothecary began experimenting with different techniques and materials with a view to creating a quality porcelain, which until now had been only really seen in the Far East.

They were successful and off the back of this success they gained investment from 13 local businesses and opened the first porcelain factory in Worcester in 1751. In 1789 they obtained Royal Warrants from King George III and so the name Royal Worcester was given.
