The Paragon China Company was a British manufacturer of high quality, fine bone china from the early 1900’s. They were honored by the British Royal Family and received Royal Appointments in 1933, 1938 and 1958. During their production years they created many beautiful patterns, shapes and styles that are now sought after and considered today’s treasures from the past.
Fine English Bone China is no longer manufactured. The only opportunity to collect English Bone China is through the secondary market. This piece is an excellent example of truly fine quality and craftsmanship.
