Wouldn't it be wonderful if every time you wanted to research a piece of Worcester Porcelain, you could be beamed, Star Trek style, to the Museum of Royal Worcester, ( formerly the Dyson Perrins Museum)  and back home equally quickly.  Sadly, that's not possible, but the Museum has come up with the next best thing, a complete catalogue of the whole Museum collection, with updated comprehensive descriptions. What's more it will be available online, from the comfort of your home, on a desktop, laptop, tablet, smart phone or smart TV.  At the touch of a few keys, 10,000 plus photographs, unique archive materials, true stories of the people throughout history that made the Museum what it is today will be available.

There is, of course, a catch. You cannot make a catalogue like this suddenly appear. Despite numerous people, like ourselves who have offered voluntary help, there are still actually money costs and this has been estimated to be £20,000. That doesn't really sound a lot to make the Museum's collection available to the world's 7.125 billion people, or to the thousands of Worcester collectors and dealers. You can help. Please donate what you can. Do it today. You can print the donation form by clicking below.
