Chelsea-Derby Porcelain Factory - (Ceramics Porcelain England) Glossary of Antique Terms C

Chelsea-Derby Porcelain Factory - (Ceramics, Porcelain, England) In 1770 the Chelsea works was sold to William Duesbury and John Heath of Derby and the term 'ChelseaDerby' is applied to those wares thought to have been made at Chelsea after the Derby take-over. The Derby styles soon got the upper hand and many authorities now think that Chelsea quickly became little more than a studio for the decoration of porcelain made at Derby. The Chelsea works closed in 1784.
