Aynsley Porcelain and China
Aynsley China was first established in 1775 in Staffordshire and remained family managed until 1970 when it was purchased by Waterford (creators of the Wedgwood brand), in a £1m transaction. With such a long history, Aynsley China Ltd has stood the test of time, making it easy to see why it may be popular with collectors.
Aynsley creates a wide range of porcelain and china items, from tableware to animals and figurines. You can narrow down your search by date or by product type, making it easy to find exactly what you are looking for.
Dates start as early as circa 1840, but there is nothing that typifies Aynsley China other than the distinctive hallmark. Even going this far back there is a huge range to choose from; floral dressing table sets with candle holders and trinket boxes set on a beautiful ornate tray; a wide array of tableware in different colours and designs; display plates painted with intricate pictures of castles, lakes or countryside; even porcelain cherubs sat on a cushion in a porcelain shoe! The large variety will delight any Aynsley China enthusiast with options to suit every households design.
Aynsley Porcelain Animals
The animals in the Aynsley China range seem to be quintessentially English in concept. Ranging from household pets, to farm animals and native wildlife. Some are glazed in a single colour and portray each individual character through their posture, others are beautifully painted and realistic looking.
Aynsley Porcelain Figurines
Aynsley figurine listings are few and far between and maybe some of the more difficult items to find. Look out for The Foxhunter from 1979 and Mr Pickwick from 1977; detailed figures that are realistically painted to portray a character. Some of the older figurines, such as the clown playing a horn (in pink or blue) collection, are a little more abstract in their finish.
