WILLIAM ADAMS.
POTTERY WAS FOUNDED at Stoke-upon-Trent early
in the present century by William Adams, which he
operated until about 1829, at which time he took his two
sons into partnership, under the style of William Adams &
Sons. About five years later larger works were established
at Tunstall. The dark blue designs retating to America were
produced at the Stoke establishment. Those in other colors,
of a later period, were, doubtless, made at the Tunstall works.
