Wardle & Company
Founded in 1868 by James Wardle, Wardle & Co. operated from William Street in Hanley. In 1884, the firm occupied the Washington Works on Victoria Street and remained in business in Hanley until 1910.
Wardle’s most popular pattern was the Bird and Fan, an Oriental styled motif rendered on a variety of table wares and other functional wares. Bamboo and Fern, Sunflower, and Pineapple are among other recognized Wardle designs.
Marked pieces bear an impressed WARDLE and British Registry Mark although many specimens attributed to Wardle are unmarked.
