Collections - The workforce
Between 1751 and the present day, thousands of people have been involved in the story of
Worcester Porcelain. Designers, modellers, painters, gilders, mould makers, engravers,
firemen, packers, salesmen, managers and directors have all made their own unique
contribution to the success of this great company.
The museum archive contains indentures, wage books, sick payment records, other written
records and photographs relating to the factory workforce. We are now in the process of
transferring large quantities of this information for publication on the internet.
This small selection of biographies is just the beginning.
