Hammersley Victorian Violets Teapot
Hammersley and Co. began in 1862 as a china manufacturer at Longton, Stoke-on-Trent by Adams, Scrivener & Co. It went through several name changes, was purchased by Carborundum Ltd. in 1966, merged with Royal Worcester Spode Ltd. in 1976, and was then taken over by Palissy Pottery Ltd., which closed Hammersley’s Works in 1982. The Hammersley name was sold to Aynsley in 1989.
The company has a history of producing high quality finely decorated bone china and was often sold through luxury china retailers.
