A Wonderful Wedding, Anniversary or Any Occasion Gift or Addition to Your Own Collection. Crafted in the United Kingdom. The company was a favored supplier of the British royal family.
Both Queen Elizabeth II and Diana, Princess of Wales, chose Aynsley china as wedding presents from the British china industry. The company was founded in 1775 by John Aynsley in Lane End, Longton, Staffordshire.
In 1861 his grandson John Aynsley built the historic Portland Works on Sutherland Road, Longton, Staffordshire. The company's profitability made it a desirable acquisition. In 1970 John Aynsley and Sons was taken over by Waterford and renamed Aynsley China Ltd. In May 1997, Aynsley China was acquired by The Belleek Pottery Group in Ireland.
The company closed its Stoke-on-Trent factory in September 2014. NOTE: All accepted offers must be paid within 24 hours or the order may be canceled. Crystal and porcelain are fragile, we pack every item in bubble wrap, reclaimed paper and reclaimed Styrofoam.
