Location and period of operation:

T A & S Green





China manufacturer at the Minerva Works, Park Street, Fenton, Stoke-on-Trent, England.
  • The partners were the brothers Thomas Allen and Spencer Green. 

  • Thomas Green (their father) was involved in manufacture at the Minerva Works from 1833, following Thomas's death in 1859 his widow, Margaret, took over running the works (with her 4 sons). In 1863, she purchased the Minerva Works which, until that time, had been leased. 

  • Following Margaret's death in 1876, two of her sons, Thomas Allen and Spencer, bought out their brothers and the company became T A & S Green.

  • Thomas Allen Green established London showrooms, known as Green Bros. and Edis. These showrooms also represented other manufacturers, for example in 1929 they were known to be showing ware from A. G. Richardson & Co. Ltd. The showrooms were at 46, Holborn Viaduct. E.C.1, London. (Pottery Gazette October 1929).

  • Around 1889 the business continued as Crown Staffordshire Porcelain Co.
