Wood & Sons China

Wood & Sons was founded in 1865 by Absalom Wood and his son T.F. Wood. Though originally named Wood & Son, the name was changed to Wood & Sons when more of the family joined the business. T.F.

Wood's son Harry F. Wood followed in his father's footsteps as chairman in 1921. It was under his supervision that the pottery became a large and prosperous earthenware manufacturer. Other potteries associated with Wood & Sons include H.J. Wood Ltd, Bursley Ltd, and Ellgreave Pottery Co. Ltd.

Wood & Sons created a vast array of well designed fine-quality earthenware, producing mostly teaware, tableware, hotelware, and fancy earthenware. Two of their most popular lines include Ivorine China, characterized by a semi-porcelain body, and Beryl Ware green tableware. Both of these designs were manufactured in the '30s and '40s. Another design popular during this time was Yvonne, an Art Deco-styled tableware made of Ivorine China.
