The Duke of Gloucester pattern is probably one of the most important and lavish ever created by the Worcester factory, and it stands as one of its finest achievements. It is thought to have been designed for William Henry, Duke of Gloucester (1743-1805), the third son of Frederick, Prince of Wales and his wife, Princess Augusta of Saxe-Gotha. It seems probable that only a single service was made, using standard 1775 dinnerware shapes such as lobed circular dishes in two sizes, turreens and large rectangular platters.
