Rockingham Porcelain 1826-1842



Rockingham Porcelain Works

The Rockingham China Works was built near Swindon, Yorkshire, on the estate of the Earl Fitzwilliam, who was both the landlord and the patron of the factory. The small pottery dated back to about 1745, when Edward Butler produced a wide range of domestic wares from "hard brownware". During the second half of 18th Century, finer earthenwares were made under the succession of partners, including John Brameld. The fine, translucent porcelain known as "Rockingham" was made by his three sons, only in the last 16 years of the factory's existence.(1826-42). In 1830 "Brameld & Co." was commissioned to produce for King William IV, a dessert service of over 200 pieces at the cost of £5000, and the term "Manufacturer of the King" was added to their mark. It was probably due to undertaking the production of the many extravagant services for royalty and nobility that the factory ran into financial difficulties which forced the closure of the Works in 1842.
