Royal Albert has its origins in a pottery in Stoke-on-Trent purchased by Thomas Wild in the late 19th century and took on the name Royal Albert in 1904. It was especially known for producing affordable tea and dinner china with a quality of lightness and transluscency that was appreciated by the public.
From the start, Royal Albert patterns were inspired by the English country garden and more specifically by roses. An example of this is "Old Country Rose", designed in 1962 by Harold Holdcroft, which is the china pattern that is most widely sold in the world.
In 2002, all production of Royal Albert bone china in England was stopped and its production was relocated to Indonesia. Royal Albert is now part of Waterford Wedgwood.
All the bone china on this site was manufacted by Royal Albert before 2002 and therefore has the "Made in Enland" stamp on the underside.
