Hackwood & Co


Location and period of operation:

Hackwood & Co




 (See sources)

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'
