Printer-friendly version

wolfeThomas Wolfe was an experienced potter from Staffordshirewhen he purchased a porcelain factory in Liverpool from Mrs. Jane Penington in about 1797. One of his partners in this venture was an important London based china merchant, Miles Mason, who later became a manufacturer in Staffordshire.  Another partner is less-well known; John Luckock who was perhaps the man listed in Chester & Mort's Directoryof 1796/97 as an engraver of Stoke. The partnership was short-lived and by August 1801 Wolfe was advertising the factory to let.  With no ceramic manufacturers showing an interest the premises became a cornmill.  

During it's short life the factory made a range of porcelain including blue printed wares with Chinese-style patterns.
