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.
