Winton Pottery
Messrs. Grimwade Brothers established their
Winton Pottery (Stoke) in about 1886. A wide range
of useful and decorative earthenware was produced.
The 'Durham Beer Set' was made in several patterns
and sold in the 1890's at a cost from 1s 11d to 3s 9d
per set. The style became Grimwades Ltd. in about
1890.
  From: Jewitts 'Ceramic Art of Great Britain 1800-1900.

 

Grimwade Brothers  was founded by Leonard Lumsden Grimwade.
Leonard had shown a natural talent for modelling pottery and it was in this field that his infant business began, in 1885. He was soon joined in the business by his older brother, Sidney Richard, another potter.

By 1890 new showrooms had been purchased in Stoke-on-Trent and London.
