Founded in 1920 by Albert Blot Used from: 1930 – 1941 Although this is clearly a monogram depicting “AB” (after the founder), it cannot be denied that the style is clearly influenced by the Augustus Rex monogram of the Meissen factory.The factory of Albert Blot started already as a quite large company and employed more than 100 workers.Both companies merged afterwards (Chelsea-Derby period). century The first factory was set up in 1745 by Thomas Briand and James Marchand, but lasted for only a short period.The second attempt, by William Duesbury in 1756, was more succesful: the Derby factory is still operational today.1866 The Charlottenbrunn factory specialised in the production of porcelain pipes.
All court pieces were marked with the AR monogram, and occasionally the mark was added to gifts produced for royal visitors.
Its products were advertised using the slogan “Derby the second Dresden”, directly relating it to Meissen and high quality porcelain. The Augustus Rex monogram (AR) was introduced by Meissen in the first half of the 18th century and other manufacturers quickly saw the advantage of including a pseudo AR mark on their own porcelain wares.
