Grosvenor China Query

Grosvenor China Query:- I have recently inherited some decorative china tea cups and saucers, all of which are made by different companies except 2. The tea cups are made by Grosvenor. Both are different patterns. I have been unable to locate any information on this company in order to be able to date the cups.

Can you help?

Hi Heather

Thanks for your interesting query about Grosvenor China. Pretty china. Looks like bone china.

I checked out my various reference books and used the searching resources as outlined in my China Replacement page and found out the Grosvenor China mark is generally associated with a company called Jackson & Gosling (LTD). Based at the Grosvenor Works in Longton, Staffordshire they were first established in 1866 in Fenton, Staffordshire. They lasted until 1961, then appeared to change their name to Grosvenor China LTD. This firm was short lived and closed in 1969.

There was another totally separate firm operating from 1869 to 1926 making more basic wares out of the Eagle Pottery Glasgow, Scotland called Frederick Grosvenor (& SON).

I suggest your tea cup and saucer are more likely Jackson & Gosling (LTD).

Best regards

Grosvenor china was a name used by the English bone china manufacturer Jackson & Gosling right up to 1962.

See this link and check your backstamp based on these marks:

You can then date your cup and saucer within a few years based on the company's marks
