The Worcester factory – in a somewhat poor state of repair – was bought by Thomas Flight in 1783 A former salesman for the company's products in London, he entrusted the day to day running of the firm to his two sons John and Joseph. Its fortunes continued to fare relatively poorly, until the younger son, John, embarked on a visit to porcelain factories in France, notably those around Limoges. On his return to Worcester, John immediately directed production towards the Limoges style, with the use of fluted shapes and decoration that mirrored popular French patterning of the day
