J G Meakin gravy boat old design flower decorated
J G Meakin gravy boat old design flower decorated J G Meakin gravy boat old design flower decorated. Nice gravy boat from J G Meakin Hanley England with classic shape and embossing and gold trim with flower decorations inside and out. Oddly there are a few purple/pink spots under the glaze where obviously some colour got spilled before final glazing. (see images)

The story of J&G Meakin starts well before the brothers opened their pottery in 1851, their father James Sr (1807- 1852) started potting some years earlier in Longton before moving to Cannon St Hanley in 1850. In 1851 due to ill health he was succeeded by his two sons James and George who formed what was to be a long and successful partnership we now know as J & G Meakin Ltd. The brothers stayed only one year at Cannon St before moving the factory to Market St where they stayed for 7 prosperous years. George went to America to set up the sales market. James remained in England and managed the pottery works and the shipping.The business did so well that a new factory was built on the side of the Caldon canal and in 1859 they moved to the now famous Eagle Pottery.In 1887 J & G Meakin purchased the Eastwood Pottery from brother Charles Meakin, now becoming the largest potting company in Britain.
