Rockingham

History

Rockingham porcelain is highly collectable as it was the only Yorkshire porcelain ever commercially produced.

The factory owned by the Bramelds made fine porcelain at Swinton near Rotherham between 1826 and 1842. This was under the patronage of Earl Fitzwilliam. The Wentworth crest of the griffin surmounted the words “Rockingham works, Brameld”.

By 1830 the quality of the porcelain and its excellence of decoration had received Royal recognition. The mark was altered from red to puce and firstly the word “Royal” was used and then “Manufacturer to the King”.
