J. & G. Meakin was an English pottery manufacturer situated in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, that was formed in 1851. J. & G. Meakin was noted in the nineteenth century for producing large amounts of inexpensive ironstone china for the domestic English market as well as export to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United States. Liberty, Sterling, Trend, Classic, and Heirloom styles were introduced circa 1970. Some of these were inspired by previous designs. Backstamp indications such as 'permanent colours,' 'everlasting colour,' or 'dishwasher proof' distinguish the modern items. "Ken Russell, Potter's attendant, piles plates into the drying oven," 1942 The potteries Johnson Brothers and Alfred Meakin Ltd had close family and corporate ties to J & G Meakin, which explains why many patterns are similar, if not identical. Midwinter Pottery was taken over by J. & G. Meakin in 1968. The Emma Bridgwater factory, decorating studio, and outlet shop are still located on Litchfield Street in Hanley, where Eastwood worked. In 1970, the Wedgwood Group purchased the company. Meakin pottery manufacture halted in 2000, and their long-established factory, Eagle Pottery, was subsequently utilised to produce Johnson Bros pottery. Eagle Pottery was dismantled in 2005 after production was moved to another country in 2004. Set comes in Original Condition with a Few Minor Chips.
