Royal Albert Tableware

The story of Royal Albert dates back to a small ceramic business established by Thomas Wild and his two sons in 1896. Thomas had the foresight to set their product apart from the competition by focusing on bone china breakfast and tea sets, with beautifully detailed floral designs on fluted shapes.

Originally branded Albert Crown China, after Prince Albert, who later on became King George VI in 1936. The 'Royal' was added in 1904 and it wasn't long before it was referred to as just 'Royal Albert', though it wasn't officially known as this until 1964. In 1897 it was one of the first manufacturers to produce royal commemoratives with the celebration of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, opening the doors for all other manufacturers to follow.

Royal Albert continued to embrace new technology and improve processes, and was one of the first to install kilns fired by gas and electricity, significantly improving the working conditions of its workers. The Wild family were intrepid businessmen and established a highly successful export business across the globe, building on the desire for the recognised exuberant English floral look.

Royal Albert merged with Royal Doulton in 1964, and has continued to produce beautifully crafted tea-ware, tableware and gifts, in its signature delight of all things floral.
