Thomas Dimmock & Co. Hanley (Shelton), Stoke-on-Trent
Manufactured 'good quality earthenware' - Operated the Albion Street Works (c.1828-59) and the Tontine Street Works (c.1830-50)
Previously: Thomas Dimmock (Snr) [1822 - 1827]
Subsequently: J. Dimmock & Co [1861 - 1904]

It appears that Thomas Dimmock (Snr) rented the potworks from a John Birch. His son Thomas Dimmock (Jnr) appears to have continued the lease and then purchased the works around 1838.

The impressed 'Pearlware' half-moon and monogram mark was used throughout the period 1829 to 1859.

Pearlware is a term used to describe a wide array of ceramics developed in the last quarter of the18th century. It is said that Josiah Wedgwood developed pearlware and marketed the same in 1779. The impetus behind his invention was Lady Dartmouth’s comments - she was bored of the usual creamware body of the ceramics. He created the innovative pearlware using some soaprock and traces of cobalt oxide which produced ceramic in a semi-translucent white colour. The new formula turned out to be the perfect base for bright coloured enamels. Later, many pottery makers began adopting the formula in the 19th century to make various ceramic wares. Pearlware is quite similar to creamware in terms of properties, however it has bluish tinge. Pearlware gained immense popularity among pottery makers as it could be gilded, moulded, painted and pierced without much effort.
