Earthenware manufacturer at Tunstall and then Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent
Gater, Hall & Co operated at the New Gordon Pottery in Tunstall from about 1899 to 1907.
The main partners were Thomas Gater and Thomas Hall.
Around 1905 Thomas Gater purchased the Royal Overhouse Pottery in Burslem from Ralph Hammersley and the business moved from here from Tunstall.
In 1916 William Barratt (of King & Barratt) purchased an interest in Gater Hall & Co. Both companies continued to operate untill c.1940 when King & Barrett closed.
Gater Hall & Co remained in production and in 1943 the business, now under the control of William Barratt, was renamed to "Barratt's of Staffordshire Ltd"
Previously: For a short time prior "Thomas Gater & Co" operated the New Gordon Pottery on his own account.
