Founded in 1775 by John Aynsley, Aynsley china has been one of the most influential companies in the British tableware industry for centuries. Known for their elaborate, unique designs and meticulous craftsmanship. As the company began to rise in popularity Queen Victoria herself commissioned Aynsley China to produce a set of tableware for her own personal use. Having a personal commission from Her Royal Majesty, allowed them to use the royal family seal in its logo, confirming the company’s reputation, and place in dinnerware history. Despite the shift in today’s china making process, little has changed in their production techniques which remain similar to those used when the company started.
