Royal Albert, named after the Albert Works pottery built in 1846, began in 1896 when Thomas C Wild bought the works. In 1897 they obtained a Royal Warrant to make commemorative pieces for the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria. The name was changed to Royal Albert in 1904. Typical of the time they were famous for their floral and particularly their chintz like designs which evolved with the introduction of Art Deco in the 1920s. Perhaps their most famous floral design is Royal Albert Old Country Roses, which is still made today, having been first introduced in 1960.
