As many will know the Royal Worcester Fine China and Porcelain factory went into administration in November 2008, the factory finally closing it’s doors in on June 14th 2009 after 258 years of China and Porcelain manufacture.
Sad times indeed for the industry but we were delighted when Portmeirion Potteries plc purchased the rights to the Royal Worcester brand in April 2009 and have set about revitalizing this iconic china tableware name.
Collectors of the Royal Worcester Howard Blue China range will be pleased to see the return of this famous and very good selling design.
Royal Worcester Fine Bone China Howard Blue was a favourite of aristocratic households in the 19th Century and remains to this day one of Royal Worcester’s most popular and long standing Bone China Dinner Set patterns.
With it’s classic cobalt blue band, accentuated with 22 carat gold bands, this range still adds a touch of elegance to any table.
The Howard Blue Dinner set range is outsourced and manufactured in a high quality china factory in Thailand to the original Royal Worcester specifications. The appearance and quality is as near as possible to the original style and you would be very hard pressed to notice any difference.
