Grainger Worcester Porcelain

Grainger Worcester c1897

Thomas Grainger (1783-1839), an apprentice at Robert Chamberlain's Worcester factory, left to establish a rival porcelain company in 1801. In 1839 Thomas Grainger died and his son George took over the company and continued the production of fine ornamental wares. Following the death of George Grainger in 1889 the factory was sold to Royal Worcester who continued production on the site until finally closing the works in 1902. During the 1890s the Grainger factory specialised in quality items for display, producing ivory porcelain in a similar style to Royal Worcester. Here is a fine pair of trumpet lily vases.
