Carr (& Co) (& Son)
Location and period of operation:
John Carr & Son
This company was based at the Low Lights Pottery, North Shields, Northumberland and was not a North Staffordshire pottery - however it is included in this list of Stoke-on-Trent potters as it sometimes used a mark incorporating the wording "Warranted Staffordshire"
Initials used on ware for identification:
J CARR & CO
JC & SON
JC & SONS
"& Co" occurs in a directory of 1850
"J. Carr" was used in 1845
"& Son" from 1854
"& Sons" from 1861
note the deceptive use of "Warranted Staffordshire"
