TYPES OF WARES PRODUCED
Earthenware manufacturers of domestic tableware. Prior to 1945 they made predominantly inexpensive export wares, particularly for the American market, both North and South. In the 19th century the firm was well-known for its white granite (undecorated ironstone) wares in imitation of contemporary French porcelain. By the 1950s about 80% of production was for export markets which by this time also included Australia, New Zealand, the Far East and Scandinavia
