Lewis Bentley & Co
Earthenware manufacturer at the Baltimore Works, Albion Street, Longton, Stoke-on-Trent
Recorded as bankrupt in the November 1891 edition of the Pottery Gazette -
evidently Bentley managed to continue in business as he was advertising in the February 1892 edition of the Gazette.
William Morley was also operating at the Baltimore Works in the period 1880-82 and it is probable that they shared the works.
