Chelsea china

Categories: Food & Drink, Industry

Manufactured in a house at the north end of Lawrence Street SW3, 1745-1784. The factory was founded by two Frenchmen, Charles Gouyn, a goldsmith and Nicholas Sprimont, a silversmith. It was the first important porcelain manufactory in England. Its products are recognized by the pottery marks used over the years: Triangle, Raised Anchor, Red Anchor and Gold Anchor. In 1769 it was taken over by William Duesbury, who eventually transferred the business to Derby
