Price & Kensington- The Brand
Founded in 1896 when the infamous Price Brothers founded their earthenware manufacturing company in Crown Works, Burslem, specialising in table top accessories and teapots. The brothers quickly became renowned for their distinctive designs. Through their hard work and dedication the Price Brothers brand saw rapid success and in 1934 they moved to the Top Bridge Works in Longport, where they became known as Price Bros Ltd.
During their time at the Top Bridge Works the brothers developed a strong working bond with Kensington Potteries, who specialised in novelty teapots. This bond grew so strong that two companies eventually merged in 1962 to become known as Price and Kensington. Rich in heritage and passionate about tabletop accessories and teapots, the Price & Kensington brand is now part of The Rayware Group and continues to flourish under family ownership. Whilst teapots remain the heart of the product range, they also offer a number of tabletop collections including co-ordinating storage and dinnerware to accommodate all tastes and styles.
