Manufacturing extremely high quality wares, Royal Worcester quickly became synonymous with high end porcelain pieces and successfully produced prestigious items for the upper classes. Throughout its rich history Royal Worcester has had strong associations with art and artists. Often an artist would be employed to decorate the prestigious items Royal Worcester had created. Today the stunning Painted Fruit collection is hand painted by an artist and etched with gold. Following the acquisition of Royal Worcester, the Portmeirion Group is committed to the development of this great British brand building on product ranges old and new.
