Livesey, Powell & Co began in Hanley, Staffordshire at the Old Hall Lane and went under this name from 1851 - 1866. They produced a wide range of earthenware, ironstone and china and were one of the earliest manufacturers of the ever popular Asiatic Pheasants pattern (still produced today). One of the founders, Livesay, retired in 1866 and the L. P. & Co was succeeded by Powell & Bishop. In 1878 they were joined by John Stonier, a glass and ceramics merchant in Liverpool and thus became Powell, Bishop & Stonier. Over one million unique items were exported into New York by P. B. & S. in 1851 alone! The company became Bishop and Stonier in 1891 and continued production until 1939.
Condition: No chips but does have a couple of tight hairlines and lots of crazing and some staining/browning throughout (discounted due to these issues but still very displayable)
