Beswick Pottery started in 1894 located at Gold Street in Longton Stoke-on-Trent, and has become famous worldwide, for producing fine ceramic models, and exquisite gifts.
During its lifetime, the company has changed hands a few times, and in 2004, the Beswick name and product design rights, have been acquired by the Dartington Crystal group.
The good news is that production of these magnificent, porcelain and decorative pieces, are still being developed, and produced to this day, albeit, from a new studio location.
So the future looks good for collectors, who will have more to choose from each year.
