Description & date

This Jonroth mark was used continually from c.1910

JONROTH had a 61 year relationship with the factory of William Adams & Sons. 

In 1892, John H Roth made his first visit to the Factory of William Adams & Sons. This began a relationship that was to last up to and after the time of the Wedgwood takeover (in 1966). The name of JONROTH is more closely associated with Adams than any other manufacturer.

In 1967 Alfred Meakin supplied Jonroth ware.
