As a Stoke-on-Trent pottery brand, Price & Kensington is a world-renowned ceramic tableware company celebrating 125 years of history this year. With a rich heritage, the brand is most known for its teapots which range from bright, bold glazes to neutral, matt finishes.
Rich in heritage and passionate about tabletop accessories and teapots, the Price & Kensington brand continues to flourish. While teapots remain at the heart of its product range, many tabletop collections are also available. This includes coordinating storage and dinnerware to accommodate all tastes and styles.
The Price & Kensington story started at the beginning of the 19th Century in Burslem, England, when the innovative Price Brothers founded their earthenware manufacturing company in Crown Works. Specialising in tabletop accessories and teapots, the brothers quickly became renowned for their distinctive designs. During their time within the local area, the brothers developed a strong working bond with Kensington Potteries, which specialised in novelty teapots. Their bond grew so strong that the two companies eventually merged in 1962 to become Price & Kensington.
For generations, the kitchen has been the heart of the home, which has always been and remains the fundamental inspiration for all new Price & Kensington developments. Price & Kensington® teapots have continued to evolve since the Brown Betty days by developing a range of fashion-led colour palettes for modern-day living. Ranging from soft neutral hues to vivid, bright tones whilst maintaining the historical shape and functionality of the ‘Betty’ teapot with a non-drip spout.
