The Worcester porcelain company was founded in 1751.
The First Period of Worcester is sometimes called the Dr. Wall period after John Wall, one of the founders and major shareholders.
During this period, Worcester was using the formula for soft paste porcelain which was obtained when they took over Lund's Bristol Porcelain works in 1752.
Worcester also introduced the use of transfer printing on porcelain in 1757, which reduced the need for hand painting which was time consuming and expensive.
