There is some doubt as to when William Ridgway took over the Church Works. The Church Works was run by Joseph Mayer in parallel with the Cobden Works, on the other side of High Street, Hanley, formerly owned by his father, Elijah Mayer. William Ridgway and his partners continued to operate both works between c.1832 and 1848, when the lease of the Cobden Works was given up. There is some evidence to suggest that Joseph Mayer, Elijah's son, and William Ridgway's cousin, bought the Church Works from Bagster's estate, and then leased it, with the Cobden Works, to William Ridgway & Co., retaining an oven and store at the Church Works for his own use. Leonard Stanley Abington was a modeller who worked for Phillips and Bagster, and later Joseph Mayer, and became the "& Co" with William Ridgway. He appears to have been the artist responsible for the moulded jugs and other wares.

I ought, at this point, to enter a word of caution. The above information has been assembled by me from a variety of sources primarily, but not only, Dr Godden's various publications. However, the publications do not always agree on every point and the information does, therefore, need further checking.

*In 1866 E. J. Ridgway relocated to the then new Bedford Works. The products of that factory were not originally intended to be part of this survey, but there has been much interest in the factory, particularly over its close association with the Dudson factory so a separate section has been created below.

 

Named Patterns.

Following the practice at Cauldon Place, printed patterns without further decoration were given a name, but no pattern number.

Moulded patterns without a known pattern number.

From the traveller's pattern book formerly in the possession of Dr Geoffrey Godden we know that the early moulded wares had pattern numbers. Unfortunately these numbers were not painted on the wares so we only know the numbers of the patterns in the book. The remainder are listed here. To make life easy, those few for which we know the pattern numbers are listed both here and in the numbered series.

Numbered Patterns.

Apart from the early traveller's book formerly in the possession of Dr Godden, and covering only patterns 1 to 196, I have been unable to trace any pattern information at all. The wares illustrated have been tracked down by the hard work of pattern, shape and mark matching. Where shapes have been shared with the Broad Street Works and the Bell Works, the fact has been noted, and joint pages set up. Luckily we have detailed pattern and pattern description books for the Broad Street Works that help to separate the wares of the different factories. I have specifically excluded any wares that I have doubts about. Given those provisos, the list is as accurate as I can make it but I accept may be open to challenge. I would be grateful to anyone who has contrary information, if they would share it with me.

On 1 January 1973 Allied English Potteries Ltd. was merged with Royal Doulton Tableware Ltd. and production under the Ridgway name effectively ceased.

The frontage on Bedford Road is still intact, as is some of the boundary wall. The rest has been demolished to make way for commercial premises. The Ridgway Memorial Chapel, built by Edward as a Methodist chapel, is now an Islamic centre.

After the end of the 4/xxxx series the numbering was split into at least three groups:
E/ for ebony or jet wares; R/ for red or terracotta wares; i/ for ironstone or earthenwares.

It is not yet clear whether the later 4-figure numbering system was a continuation of the i/xxxx with the prefix dropped, or whether it was a completely new series. Hopefully the appearance of further examples will settle the matter.

Dudson-Ridgway Jasper and Mosaic Wares

Up to this point I have considered it fairly simple to distinguish the wares produced by Dudson and those by the Bedford Works. Basically, everything with a fractional pattern number was Ridgway, and everything else was Dudson. I was, however, confronted with a problem after reading Jewitt's The Ceramic Art of Great Britain (1878). Volume 2 describes the products of both the Ridgway Bedford Works and Dudson's Hope Street Works. Jewitt states that both factories produced moulded ware and mosaic ware, but only the Bedford Works produced jasper ware and jet ware, and he praises both wares with effusive language. Whilst the comment on jet or ebony ware was to be expected, that on jasper ware was not. All jasper wares were, up to now, thought to have been produced at Hope Street. Audrey Dudson has admitted that Dudson only started to advertise jasper wares in 1882. Until this apparent contradiction is resolved, I shall be listing the wares on the individual pages by type and number series rather than factory, and I will index the series from both the Dudson and Bedford Works entries.
