Description:Cup, plate and saucer made by the Empire Porcelain Company of Shelton, Stoke-on-Trent.

The Empire Porcelain Company was in business by 1895 and its original partners were made up of members of the Austrian families of Rosenfeld and Lazarus who ran other ceramic factories in Europe. The Empire Porcelain Company operated from two factories, either side of Elgin Road, off Stoke Road. In 1951 the business was acquired by the Kaufman Group, which in turn was acquired by the Qualcast Group in 1958. The Empire Porcelain Company was incorporated as a Limited Company in 1963. The works closed in 1967.
