Royal Worcester Porelain.Founded in Worcester, England in 1751, the factory was established on the banks of the River Severn by a group of local businessmen, with the guidance of Dr John Wall, an eminent physician. Dr. Wall along with another of the group, apothecary William Davis, developed their method for producing porcelain. Dr. Wall secured the sum of £4500 from the partners to establish the factory in Worcester and those original partnership deeds are still housed in the Museum of Worcester Porcelain.
The Worcester factory always prided itself on its quality Worcester Porcelain. It received a royal warrant in 1789, and is still currently by appointment to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
