I did have a tea set and other matching items in this pattern. Please note, in the photographs some items look a different shade but I can assure you this is just a photographic aberration and all items are identical and in perfect condition and all the the same shade and colour. If you have any further questions please ask. Royal Worcester is believed to be the oldest or second oldest remaining English porcelain brand still in existence today, established in 1751 this is disputed by Royal Crown Derby, which claims 1750. Dr John Wall, a physician, and William Davis, an apothecary, developed a unique method for producing porcelain and, in 1751, persuaded a group of 13 businessmen to invest in a new factory at Warmstry House, Worcester, England, on the banks of the River Severn.
After the 1976 merger with Spode and due to heavy competition from overseas, the production was switched to factories in Stoke and eventually abroad. The last trading date for Royal Worcester was 14 June 2009. The brand name was later acquired by Portmeirion Pottery Group a pottery company based in Stoke-on-Trent.
