Antique Circa 1850 ENGLISH, WHITE IRONSTONE TURKEY PLATTER
Pankhurst took over the pottery of William Ridgway of the Ridgway Potteries family, who had introduced white granite ware. Between 1850 and 1851, the pottery operated as "J. W. Pankhurst" until J. Dimmock joined as a partner in 1852, at which point "& Co." was added. The company had operations from Charles Street and Old Hall Street in Hanley from 1850 to 1882 until its bankruptcy and subsequent sale to Johnson Bros.
