Johnson Brothers China, founded by Alfred, Frederick and Henry Johnson, began in the late 1800s in Hanley, Stoke on the Trent, England. The company flourished and eventually had five manufacturing facilities. It became a division of Waterford Wedgwood of Josiah Wedgwood, Ltd in 1968.
Having established a solid reputation producing basic “whiteware” the company developed a product known as "semi-porcelain", a range of earthenware that had the characteristics of fine china, but the durability of ironstone. This kind of tableware soon became very popular in the United States due to its durability and low cost. The Heritage Hall collection is one of the most elegant pieces of Johnson Brothers collection but also one of the most expensive collections. Yet, it is worth every penny. It looks richly designed and is very inviting to look at. It doesn’t look like it should be in a dining table, it should be on a glass cabinet perfect for tableware admirers.
I listed this and a few other items today on my etsy site.
