Johnson Brothers, originally aBritishtableware manufacturer and exporter, was noted for its early introduction of "semi-porcelain" tableware. Some of its designs, "Eternal Beau", "Dawn", "Old Britain Castles" and "Historic America", achieved widespread popularity and are still collected today. Since 1968 it has operated as a part of theWedgwood Group.The company's name derives from the names of the company's founders. The four original 'Johnson Brothers' were Alfred, Frederick, Henry and Robert. Their father married the daughter of a master potter, Alfred Meakin. In 1883 Alfred and Frederick Johnson began production at a defunct pottery known as the Charles Street Works they had purchased at a bankruptcy sale inHanley,Stoke-on-Trent. At first theyspecializedin the manufacture of durableearthenwarewhich they called "White Granite". The success of this venture led to rapid expansion. In 1888, Henry Johnson joined them, followed ten years later by a fourth brother Robert Johnson.Johnson Brothers gainedRoyal WarrantsfromQueen Elizabeth IIand theQueen Mother. During the 1950s award-winning designs, like "Old Britain Castles" and "Historic America", became very popular and the company was twice awarded theQueen's Award to Industryfor their contributions to the British economy.Despite this award, the late 1960s saw changing popular taste, rising competition andspiralingproduction costs which led Johnson Brothers to curtail further expansion. In 1968, in order to remain competitive, Johnson Brothers joined theWedgwoodGroup.In 2003, the manufacturing of Johnson Brothers products in Britain ceased, and was transferred toChina. According to theWaterford Wedgwoodcompany, production in China cost 70% less than did production in Britain. The closure of British production facilities eliminated around 1,000 British jobs, contributing to the rising unemployment in Britain's old pottery-making centre.The Eagle Pottery works were demolished in 2005
