Chelsea Garden embodies the traditions of Imari decoration but utilizes a softer palette within the modern colors and styles of today’s homes. The pattern is named from their connection with London’s Chelsea factory which was purchased by the company in 1769.
The Royal Crown Derby Porcelain Company is owned by one of the world’s most respected ceramic brands, Steelite International, which has its headquarters in the English ‘Potteries’. It employs 200 skilled craftspeople and manufactures the highest quality English Fine Bone China at its factory on a four and a half acre site at Osmaston Road, in Derby, England. The Company produces bone china tableware and collectables, for sale primarily in china and glass retailers and department stores, both in the UK and overseas. The present factory was established in 1878 but the business traces its origins to the original factory which was set up in Nottingham Road in about 1750. Queen Victoria granted permission to include the title “Royal” in the company name in 1890.
