E E Bodley & Co


Location and period of operation:

E E Bodley & Co





China manufacturer at the Broad Street Pottery, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, England

NOTE: this business is not to be confused with the previous Bodley businesses at the nearby town of Burslem. In 1892 that company was declared bankrupt.

  • Following the bankruptcy of the Burslem companies a different family member, E. E. Bodley, started business at the Broad Street Pottery, Hanley. 

  • This E. E. Bodley may have been Edwin J. D. Bodley's wife - Elizabeth E. Bodley.

  • Two new patterns were registered to the Broad Street Pottery: 218361 on the 16 September 1893 and 218415 on the 18th September.  

  • A 1894 advert states "Makers of the F.B. Indian and some other of the Hill Pottery Patterns" - the Hill Pottery was the previous Burslem works.
