    Default The Worcester Porcelain Factory ..things left behind..July 2012


    The Worcester Porcelain Factory, the are only a couple of buildings left on this site now the others have been converted into apartments..this building is currently being emptied now in preperation for the same..still very much a good splore ..never ceases to amaze me just how much is left behind..big boxes with "THROW" written on them being filled by the contractors ready for the skips below..

    History can be found here..
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_W...#Early_history

    Hope you enjoy my pics..

    How she used to look..






















    In these boxes are hundreds of tiny stickers that they put on the porcelain before its glazed..


























    Alot of poreclain was made with the Balmoral signiture..dozens of rolls of film and photos of the building and grounds where boxed up in the safe room..





    Jamie Olivers Range of Tableware..

    Your photos are just stunning, you have such a way with images, simply amazing.
