Johnson Brothers were based in Hanley, Staffordshire potteries and began production in 1883. The brothers were Alfred, Frederick, Henry and Robert (based in New York) and were four grandsons of the master potter, Alfred Meakin. The firm joined the Wedgwood group in 1968 and finally closed UK production in 2003.
