Background of 18th Century Worcester: The Worcester Royal Porcelain Company began in 1751. Dr. John Wall, a physician, and William Davis, an apothecary, attempted to develop a method of making porcelain. In 1751 Wall and Davis persuaded a group of 13 businessmen to invest in a new factory at Warmstry House, Worcester, on the banks of the River Severn. Wall and Davis secured the sum of £4500 from the partners to establish the factory, known then as "The Worcester Tonquin Manufactory"; the original partnership deeds are still housed in the Museum of Worcester Porcelain. The early wares were a form of soft-paste porcelain with bodies that contained a soaprock, commonly called in most ceramic circles as soapstone.
