ANGLO-AMERICAN POTTERY.
J. & T. EDWARDS.
Previous to 1842 Messrs. James and Thomas Edwards con-
ducted a pottery at Burslem, England, styled the Kiln-Croft
Works. This partnership continued only for a short time, and

manufactory of John Rogers & Son, formerly owned by John
and George Rogers, and embarked in business alone.

JOHN TAIS.
About 1840 John Tams was carrying on business at Longton,
England. One of his relatives, probably a brother, James
Tams, importer, of Philadelphia, was commissioned by Mr.
John Price Wetherill, a wealthy resident of that city, to have
two souvenir designs made in china in honor of General Wil-
liam Henry Harrison and Henry Clay, the occasion being a
"barbecue" at Mr. Wetherill's country place at Walnut Hill,
Montgomery county, Pa. It is said that a large number of
these plates were imported, several of which are known to
have survived.
