Colclough China Ltd

Colclough China Ltd was formerly known as H. J. Colclough, after being founded by Herbert Joseph Colclough in 1897.

The Vale Works were based at Goddard Street in Longton, Staffordshire, and after a visit from King George V and Queen Mary in 1913 it received a royal licence which saw them adopt the trade name ‘Royal Vale’.

In 1937 H. J. Colclough merged with two other businesses to become Colclough China Ltd. This new venture was very successful and their bone china tea sets proved immensely popular.

After the business was sold to Booths Ltd in 1944, the two companies continued to trade under their own names until they were finally merged to form Booths & Colcloughs Ltd in 1948.

In 1953 the companies were bought by the Lawley Group who also owned Ridgeway & Adderley Ltd. This saw them briefly renamed Ridgeway, Adderley, Booths & Colcloughs Ltd from the 1st of January 1955, and by the 28th of February 1955, it had become Ridgeway Potteries Ltd.
