Some wonderful Royal Albert pieces for your pleasure! The familiar name of Royal Albert has a distinguished history, with a long standing tradition of producting fine quality china. Read a brief history of the Royal Albert line below.
Royal Albert was first founded in 1894 by Thomas Clark Wild and manufactured in T.C. Wild & Sons Limited, Crown China Works, Staffordshire, England. The first backstamp used the initials T.C.W. and was used until about 1905 when the backstamp with the Royal Albert name began to be used. In 1960 the company changed hands to the Pearson Group which also merged Royal Doulton brands under their manufacture. In 1993 the Royal Doulton group left to form its own company, and in December of 2002, all production in England ceased, the company moving manufacturing operations to Indonesia. Needless to say, avid collectors look for the Made in England stamp for all their collectible pieces.
