The Worcester porcelain factory was established in 1751. I compared this book with The Ewers-Tyne Collection of Worcester Porcelain At Cheekwood by John Sandon

The Worcester porcelain factory was established in 1751. This worthy publication documents the choice pieces in the British Museum's collection. They date from 1751-83 and many of the items originate from the 1923 donation of Mr and Mrs Frank Lloyd. I compared this book with The Ewers-Tyne Collection of Worcester Porcelain At Cheekwood by John Sandon. The British Museum Collection is not as diversified nor as beautiful as the Ewers-Tyne Collection. The John Sandon book is a little cheaper and certainly more colorful.

Opened to the public in 1999, Rienzi houses a substantial collection of European decorative arts, paintings, furnishings and porcelain.

During her tenure at the Museum, Ms. Howe developed the Museum’s decorative-arts collections, both at the MFAH and at Rienzi, and curated or co-curated exhibitions on a range of material, much of it newly examined, in such presentations as The Masterson Collection of Worcester Porcelain (1985); Marks of Achievement: Four Centuries of American Presentation Silver (1987) . Opened to the public in 1999, Rienzi houses a substantial collection of European decorative arts, paintings, furnishings and porcelain, and an extensive holding of portrait miniatures.

Royal Worcester was established in 1751 and is believed to be the oldest or second oldest remaining English porcelain brand still in existence today (this is disputed by Royal Crown Derby, which claims 1750 as its year of establishment). Part of the Portmeirion Group since 2009, Royal Worcester remains in the luxury tableware and giftware market, although production in Worcester itself has ended.

A guide to dating Worcester Marks on pottery and porcelain including date codes and dates for the infamous Royal Worcester porcelain dot mark sequence. Earlier Worcester Marks are rarely seen, and typically the crescent mark dates pieces to the Dr Wall period before 1783. But pieces bearing the crescent mark are rare and usually the provence of specialist collectors. In the late 1700s Worcester were among the first to use the Bute shape for teabowls, tea cups and coffee cups.
