Our History

The county of Worcestershire and fine ceramics have been inextricably linked for more than 250 years. Beside the River Severn in Worcester, Dr John Wall invented a new method of creating porcelain and established the Warmstry Works.



The origins of the Royal Worcester Porcelain Company can be traced back to the formation of the Worcester Tonquin Manufacture, a precursor company formed in 1751. Together with ‘Derby Porcelain’, later known as the Royal Crown Derby Porcelain Company which was founded at around the same time, the enterprise was one of the two earliest porcelain manufacturers in Britain, initially producing ‘soft-paste’ porcelain. ‘Hardpaste’ porcelain, pioneered in Europe by von Tschirnhaus and Böttger at Meissen in the early 18th century, was not in general production in Britain until the 1770s.
