Location and period of operation:
Earthenware and Jasper ware manufacturers at Eastwood, Hanley.
Subsequently: William Hackwood.
NOTE: This is not the same William Hackwood - who was a modeller at Josiah Wedgwood's Etruria works.
"Contemporary advertisements and some directories list 'Hackwood, Dimmock & Co.' - a style not included in rate records. It is very probable that 'Hackwood & Co' and 'Hackwood, Dimmock & Co' were one and the same firm.
Chaffers' mark handbook lists the mark 'Hackwood Dimmock & Co.'
In some rate lists (1822 and 1825) this firm is listed as William Hackwood & Co."
From: Godden - 'British Pottery & Porcelain Marks'
