Thomas Hughes rented premises in Burslem to establish his family business in 1860. Working in Earthenwares and Ironstones produced ordinary domestic wares employing the common patterns. The family business lasted almost 100 years until 1957 when they were taken over by Arthur Wood & Son. The Unicorn Pottery Ltd took part of the works in 1961. "Asiatic Pheasants" has only so far been recorded between 1895 - 1910
