Gordon Campbell

Region in northern England known for its pottery production. Pottery has been made on the banks of the river Tyne to the west of Newcastle since the early 18th century. By 1827 there were at least 20 potteries producing household wares (especially Willow pattern plates), and a smaller number making tiles. In the 19th century the most important firms were Thomas Fell & Co. (1817–90) and C. T. Maling and Sons (c. 1850–1963); Maling replicas are now produced by Ringtons Ceramics, and New Castle Delft operates in the buildings of the Maling pottery. In the 20th century the most prominent pottery was Adams & Co., which was founded in 1880 as a manufacturer of toilets and sinks, and from 1904 to 1975 made art pottery (notably Art Nouveau pottery) that it sold as ‘Adamesk’.
