Description
Porcelain has been produced in England since the eighteenth century. Early porcelain was often produced in styles imitating imported Chinese wares but England's makers soon developed distinctive styles reflecting the fashions of the day. At one time England had dozens of porcelain makers, including such well-known names as Bow, Chelsea, Coalport and Minton. Today many of these names have passed into history, but Royal Crown Derby, Royal Worcester and Spode remain, albeit with Derby being the only factory still manufacturing pots on site.
