Royal Albert

The story of Royal Albert stretches back over one hundred years to a small pottery business established by Thomas Wild in 1896, in Longton - one of the six towns that make up Stoke-on-Trent, “The Potteries”. This household name began as a family business. For it was the ability and work of Thomas and his sons – Fred and Tom (Thomas Clark or TC) – that made thecompany famous for bone china tea and breakfast sets.

Royal Albert is  inspired by the English country garden and the national flower, the rose. This quintessential English grace, elegance, and romance accounts for Royal Albert’s timeless popularity in tableware.  

To own a piece of Royal Albert is to have a piece of history in your hands. For this household name had links with the royal household from the start, after Prince Albert who became King George VI in 1936. China produced at the factory was therefore initially branded as Albert Crown China. 'Royal' was added in 1904. But it soon became known familiarly as 'Royal Albert'.
