Based in Birmingham, Heritage Collection is a UK family business founded in 1976 as Heritage Silverware Ltd by husband and wife team Martin and Mireille McDonagh. Their first factory was located at New Canal Street in Digbeth. They shared this area of 70s Birmingham with Typhoo Tea and Norton’s Motorbikes. Today Heritage operates from their factory in Small Heath, Birmingham, offering an exclusive range of luxury tableware to both local and international hospitality markets. The main factory has a manufacturing and plating facility with two showrooms. We are privileged to be the leading British tableware manufacturer for top hotels and restaurants around the world.
Heritage's expertise lies in tailoring tableware to any given hospitality offering. We look for ways to highlight and complement chef’s culinary creations. We have a long track record of creating bespoke pieces for restaurants that want to stand out. A lot of companies work with us because they get something different, something bespoke. We can be very flexible and work with you to design something that no one else has. We have designed everything from one bespoke piece for a decorated chef to a 20,000 piece collection for a 5-star global hotel group. Everything is created at our production facility in Birmingham. We create durable, practical pieces for brasserie or more relaxed settings. For a five star hotel or fine dining restaurant, we focus more on the design – how the tableware fits with the chef’s menu, how it looks on the table and presents the food. We are also specialists in the bespoke manufacture of Afternoon Tea items in silver plate and stainless steel. We are privileged to make items for afternoon tea at The Ritz, afternoon tea at The Dorchester and afternoon tea at The Lanesborough to name a few.
Our core belief in British craftsmanship has meant the company continues to develop its manufacturing capabilities in the heart of Birmingham. Combining traditional hand skills and techniques developed over hundreds of years with advanced software and machinery. Heritage is continually innovating and developing new and interesting Luxury tableware products and services.
