Royal Albert

The story of Royal Albert stretches back over 100 years. Whilst the Royal Albert brand was created in 1904, its roots are to be found in the Albert Works, built in 1896. The Albert Works was owned by Thomas Wild and his sons who specialized in affordable tea, breakfast and dessert wares with floral designs. They built up a reputation of producing beautiful china tea and breakfast sets and firmly established the Royal Albert brand. English bone china was admired for its lightness, translucency and its soft subtle almost pearly white quality. Much approved of by the tea-party hostess of the nineteenth and early twentieth century.
