Royal Worcester Repair and Restoration
The name Royal Worcester refers to porcelains made in Worcester, England starting in 1751. This is one of the oldest English porcelain brands. Only Royal Crown Derby claims that it is older. Royal Worcester received its first Royal Warrant from George III in 1788; additional warrants were issued by the Prince of Wales in 1807 and the Princess of Wales in 1808.
Royal Worcester began by producing soft paste porcelains featuring Chinese-inspired blue painted underglaze wares. This company constantly hired skilled painters and granted them significant artistic freedoms with decorating wares. Most depictions included landscapes, flowers, fruits and finely gilded patterns. Several of Royal Worcester’s best-known patterns include Devonshire, Evesham Gold, Holly Ribbons and Hyde Park. In addition to their dinnerware, Royal Worcester is known for its figurines. Royal Worcester created a new material called Parian, which revolutionized how companies made figurines.
Starting in 1790, Worcester pieces were marked with the name “Worcester,” but the company underwent numerous name and mark changes over the years. In 1862, it was renamed to the Worcester Royal Porcelain Company and pieces started to be marked as “Royal Worcester.” In 1976, Royal Worcester merged with W.T. Copeland and became Royal Worcester Spode, which is still in operation today by the Portmeirion Group.
