Click on this blog post title to go to a recent UK Sentinel news article about Wedgwood current events. The following news was found on Kovels Komments, the Kovels blog, from an email link today. I can't seem to verify it in the UK papers we monitor, but if it's true it will be a big boon to the Spode and Royal Worcester brands. We'll keep looking for more new! "The Spode and Royal Worcester brand names and trademarks, patents, etc. have been purchased from Royal Worcester Spode by Portmeirion Potteries for $5.27 million. Portmeirion plans to continue making the brands' products and some patterns. Portmeirion's chairman says some of the brands' patterns, including Spode's Blue Italian and Christmas Tree and Royal Worcester's Evesham, will be "reinvigorated." " Send us an email or contact us through our website if you have any information that we could share on the buyout of Spode and Royal Worcester and we'll post it!
