T A & S Green





China manufacturer at the Minerva Works, Park Street, Fenton, Stoke-on-Trent, England.
  • The partners were the brothers Thomas Allen and Spencer Green. 

  • Thomas Green (their father) was involved in manufacture at the Minerva Works from 1833, following Thomas's death in 1859 his widow, Margaret, took over running the works (with her 4 sons). In 1863, she purchased the Minerva Works which, until that time, had been leased. 

  • Following Margaret's death in 1876, two of her sons, Thomas Allen and Spencer, bought out their brothers and the company became T A & S Green.

  • Thomas Allen Green established London showrooms, known as Green Bros. and Edis.

  • Around 1889 the business continued as Crown Staffordshire Porcelain Co.
