Did you know Royal Worcester was truly started by royalty?  The porcelain factory was founded in 1751 with a Royal Warrant from King George III.  Dr. John Wall, a physician, and a group of local businessmen, established a porcelain factory as a way to boost prosperity and employment in Worcester, England.   Royal Worcester is believed to be the oldest or second oldest remaining English porcelain brand still in existence today, established in 1751.  It's also credited with being the first to apply transferring of prints onto porcelain (in 1756).  The factory celebrated its 250th anniversary 2001. The last trading date for Royal Worcester was 14 June 2009.  However, 2009 the brand name and intellectual property were acquired by Portmeirion Pottery Group and they continue to make Royal Worcester, but no longer in Worcester.
