& Richard Daniel
Location and period of operation:
H & R
China and Porcelain (and later earthenware) manufacturer at London Road, Stoke, Stoke-on-Trent
Henry Daniel: H. & R. Daniel
'Henry Daniel, who had earlier been responsible for all the enamelling and gilding at the Spode works, established his own porcelain factory at Stoke in 1823.
Extremely fine work was carried out at this little-known manufactory. In about 1826, the style became H.& R. Daniel.
Rare marked specimens show the quality attained. In 1827, the Earl of Shrewsbury ordered several services from this firm ..... and these examples show well the fine quality of the Daniel products. Many pieces from these Shrewsbury services bear a large printed mark of flowers, a vase and a harp with the words H. & R. DANIEL. STOKE-UPON-TRENT, STAFFORDSHIRE.
But most Daniel products are unmarked....
From about 1829, the firm's style was H. Daniel & Sons. Henry died in 1841. The Stoke pottery was continued by Richard until about 1854.
The Daniels closely rivalled Spode and Minton, and their ware is unfortunately neglected by collectors, who as yet do not recognise Daniel porcelain.'
