The pottery firm of Aynsley was established by John Aynsley in Longton, Stoke in 1775. In 1861 his grandson, also called John Aynsley, built the renowned Portland Works in Longton, Staffs.
Aynsley china is synonymous with high quality, strong and brilliantly white bone china. One of the oldest surviving potteries, Aynsley made it to the 21st century and was still there after the closure of other big plants like Spode in 2007.
