Johnson Brothers

Johnson Brothers was founded in 1883 by four brothers, Henry, Robert, Alfred and Fred Johnson. They were grandsons of the famous Meakin dinnerware lineage. Although they started the business on a modest scale, by the 1940s, it had become probably the largest firm of earthenware manufacturers in the world, controlling a number of factories in England and abroad. The company joined the Wedgwood Group in 1968.
