This exquisite small pitcher was probably made by Royal Worchester....but it is unmarked. The hand decorated, flawless, floral motif is just wonderful. The lines and colors blend together to lend an air of premium quality, that can't be duplicated. Each side has a different flowing and realistic design that could captivate the on looker. The pitcher is nearly 5 & 1/2 inches tall and about 4 & 1/4 inches in overall width (including the handle). It is not marked, but judging from the design, superior artwork, we think it is probably Royal Worchester that was made prior to 1889. The pitcher is in exceptional condition....the only exception being a small flea bite on the rim.

In the mid 1700s Dr. John Wall, an eminent physician, and a druggist friend, William Davis, began experimenting with materials to produce a porcelain recipe. After their success, they borrowed money from 13 other local business men to open a factory in Worcester, England. In 1751 the first Worcester porcelain factory was established.
Worcester played a major role in the development of the English porcelain , and the company went through several name changes and mergers. Meissen and Royal Worchester shared honors for making the highest quality porcelain available. Worcester is now known as Royal Worcester Porcelain Co.

Royal Worcester is known for its history, provenance and classically designed English porcelain. The company is now part a conglomerate, and it still manufactures luxury tableware .
