This pattern, with its illustrations of various village scenes, was produced for half a century by Johnson Brothers of England.
Johnson Brothers was founded in 1883 at Charles Street Works in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent. The names of the brothers who founded the company are: Alfred, Frederik, Henry, and Robert. Johnson Brothers continued its growth in the tableware industry throughout the first half of the 20th century. But by the late 1960s, demand waned and the company was acquired by the Wedgwood group in 1968.
