A little information:
Royal Worcester can trace its origins back to 1751, when a group of 15 men founded a porcelain factory in the city. The company opened a showroom in London as early as 1754 and printing on porcelain was invented in Worcester in 1756.
Its first royal dinner service was made for the Duke of Gloucester in the 1770s and in 1789 George III awarded Worcester its first Royal Warrant, allowing it to use the Royal Coat of Arms and the words "Manufacturers to their Majesties".
POSTAGE: As mentioned in my Shop Policies, an appropriate refund for postage/packing will be made if less than estimated.
