The Long History of Porcelain in Worcester has been well documented and the beautiful tableware they’ve created over the years is still on show and can be viewed at Worcester Porcelain Museum in the centre of Worcester
 

Royal Worcester is believed to be the oldest or second oldest remaining English porcelain brand still in existence today having been established in 1751. A challenge to the title of the oldest remaining porcelain brand still stand by Royal Crown Derby which claims 1750 as its year of establishment.


Since 2009 part of the Portmeirion Group, Royal Worcester remains in the luxury tableware and giftware market, although it is no longer produced here in Worcester.


Technically, the Worcester Royal Porcelain Co. Ltd. known as Royal Worcester was formed in 1862, and wares produced before that date are known as Worcester porcelain, although the company has a Royal Warrant from 1788.


The stunning hand painted designs are very upmarket, unusual and reassuringly expensive!


This large collection is on display at Croome Court and many of these luxury items are the original Worcester Porcelain
 


Time for tea?


Enjoy a cup of tea in one of Worcesters independent coffee shops and although it’s unlikely it’ll be served in a Worcester Porcelain, it’ll still be part of a memorable day in Worcester!
