Royal Crown Derby was one of the earliest English porcelain factories (1740s), the first factory being located in Nottingham Road, Derby. The current factory at Osmaston Road was purpose built in 1875, and the long established tradition of fine ceramics is continued today at the same location. The title ‘Royal’ was awarded by Queen Victoria in 1890.
