A TEA-ny bit OF HISTORY:

Paragon China Company Ltd was a manufacturer of bone china from 1919 to 1960.  It was previously known as Star China Company and more recently formed part of the Royal Doulton group.  Paragon produced high quality tea, breakfast and dinnerware.  It was awarded royal warrants of appointment by several members of the British Royal Family.

1926 & 1930 – The Duchess of York (Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon) commissioned china for the nursery of Princess Elizabeth who is now Queen Elizabeth II and a tea service to mark the birth of Princess Margaret

1933 – Queen Mary granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment

1937 – King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (the future Queen Mother) granted a Royal Warrant for the Coronation

1938 – Queen Elizabeth (the future Queen Mother) granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment

1953 – Queen Elizabeth II granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment

Royal Warrants were issued to companies who regularly supplied Queen Mary, the Queen Mother and Queen Elizabeth with fine china.  In the 1960’s, the company changed hands several times and then in 1972, Paragon became a part of Royal Doulton.  China under the Paragon name was continued until 1991.
