There seems to be little information available about the locations of this company until they took over the Unicorn Pottery from Wedgwood & Co in 1890. Certainly produced a similar quality of product to the Wedgwood company they made much of the new premises and incorporated it into their marks including their impressed marks until they launched a new Unicorn trade mark in 1900
Developed another three trade marks until their incorporation into the Johnson Bros Group in 1956. Were Producing good quality "Asiatic Pheasants" wares probably with the Wedgwood copperplates both prior to taking over the Unicorn pottery and certainly afterwards probably until 1900 and possibly up to the Great War
