John Aynsley began the company at Lane End, Longton, Staffordshire, in 1775. John Aynsley, his grandson, erected the historic Portland Works on Sutherland Road in Longton, Staffordshire, in 1861. The prosperity of the company made it an appealing acquisition. Spode submitted a bid in June 1970, which was surpassed by ‘Denbyware’ in July. ‘Waterford Glass’ was immediately contacted, and a £1 million bid was accepted. Waterford bought ‘John Aynsley and Sons’ in 1970 and renamed it ‘Aynsley China Ltd’. Waterford sold the company in 1987 in order to concentrate the group's fine china sales on the ‘Wedgwood’ brand around the world. ‘The Belleek Pottery Group’ in Ireland purchased ‘Aynsley China’ in May 1997. The company closed its Stoke-on-Trent factory in September 2014. As of July 2015 the factory shop is still open but its future is uncertain as the site is being advertised as for sale. Set consists of x8 Teacups, x8 Saucers, x7 Side Plates, x1 Sugar Bowl, x1 Creamer & x1 Serving Dish. Set is in Very Good Condition.
