Felix & Richard Pratt (Maker)

Printer-friendly version

pratt detailWilliam Pratt was a master potter at Lane Delph (Fenton) who operated from around 1753 until his death in 1799. It is said that the business was continued by his widow with the help of her sons who eventually started up separate businesses in Fenton. Felix Edward Pratt and Richard Pratt formed F & R Pratt and their brother John formed his own company eventually teaming up with William Pratt to form J & W Pratt. 

The first record of Felix & Richard Pratt appears to be the 1818 trade directories of both Parson & Bradshaw and James Pigot here they are listed as earthenware manufacturers of Fenton. They made a wide range of domestic earthenware but are perhaps best remembered for their multi-colour transfer printing.
