The Colclough China company was was founded in 1890 by Herbert Joseph Colclough who was the the ex-mayor of Stoke-on-Trent and Mr.Cloclough was a very conscientious man who love his pottery and was known on occasion to stay up all nigth next to his kilns which he had packed so that he could be the first to see the new designs when they emerged.
After expending his company he moved to the Vale in Longton and was honoured when in 1913 he was visited by King George V and Queen Mary who gave royal licence for the company for the company to produce Royal Vale China. In the 1930's Colclough China limited was expending fast and it was then that they started to produce the tea and dinner ware that we know today. They were the first company to produce fine bone china for the every day market which was marketed by the piece ruling out the need for large sets to be purchased first.
In 1948 Colclough China Limited took over Booths and Adderley and then in the early 1950's merge with Ridgeway Company. Colclough and Ridgeway became part of the Royal Doulton Group in the early 1970's, however in 1996 Colclough production discontinued and manufacture ceased.
