Vintage Paragon Teacups and Saucers

Welcome to our wonderful collection of Paragon tea cups and saucers.  The Paragon name has a history with the Royal Family, who have awarded the company royal warrants of appointment beginning in 1933 by H.M. Queen Mary to 1963, when the warrant was lastly reissued.   Royal Warrants were issued to companies who regularly supplied Queen Mary, the Queen Mother and Queen Elizabeth with fine china.

The Paragon name evolved from the famous Star China Company, who began using the name in 1903.   The originators were Herbert James Aynsley (son of John Aynsley who founded John Aynsley & Sons), John Gerrard Aynsley and William Illingworth.  In 1920 Paragon China became The Paragon China Company.

Paragon often numbered their pieces using a pattern number for each series with a letter prefix and sometimes a suffix of  /1, /2, etc., which designated the color of the pattern if the pattern was available in different colors.  In 1972 Paragon became a part of Royal Doulton who produced the china under the Paragon name until 1991. The Paragon name was discontinued in 1992 and although some patterns continue to be produced under the Royal Albert name, this too was discontinued by Royal Doulton.
