Since it was first established in 1894 Beswick has become a famous English name associated with fine ceramic models and gifts. The Gold Street works in Longton Stoke-on-Trent produced a wealth of lifelike animal pieces including cats, dogs, farm animals and wildlife that were widely sold and collected by many.

In 1948 John Beswick secured the right to reproduce a range of 10 Beatrix Potter earthenware characters. In 1952 the Company began manufacturing a range of Disney characters including Snow White, Mickey Mouse and Bambi. These together with other character studies from that time became highly sought -after by collectors.

In 1969 the Beswick business was sold to Royal Doulton and production was continued until 2002 when manufacturing ceased and the Gold Street works was demolished in 2003. In 2004 the Beswick name and product design rights were purchased and is now part of the Dartington Crystal group of brands. Made using the same traditional skills in modelling, making and hand- painting, the current Beswick collection continues the proud heritage of fine quality and detail in every piece.
