Royal Worcester, the company known today as a legend in the tableware industry, was started in 1751. Dr. John Wall, a gifted surgeon and local pharmacist stumbled upon a formula for "soft paste" porcelain. The paste formula was unique for its time and received much attention, as it did not crack when exposed to boiling water. With this industry-changing formula in hand, Wall and his associate secured local financial backing and formed Worcester - Tonkin, a porcelain studio on the banks of the river Severn in Worcester, England.
