Booths Ltd

We specialise in the high quality earthenwares produced by this firm in Tunstall, Staffordshire, from 1891-1948, following on from earlier companies such as Thomas Booth & Son and TG&F Booth. In 1948 the firm merged with Colcloughs, and in 1955 with Ridgway, forming the short-lived Allied English Potteries, later taking the name of the Royal Doulton group. Pottery with Booths marks continued to be manufactured well into the 1980s.

Best known for the highly collectable Real Old Willow pattern, Booths produced hundreds of other beautiful and colourful patterns, many of which are now highly sought after by collectors.
