Bevington, Thomas

Thomas Bevington was a member of a prolific family of potters in Hanley, Staffordshire. He started his business in Burton Street around 1870 and continued there until 1891 when he was succeeded by Ambrose Bevington.

The company specialized in 'raised flower goods' - baskets, vases and table decorations in china. Like most of the Bevington family, Thomas started as a decorator, and a substantial part of his business was supplying blanks for other decorators. From 1880 his designs were covered by 'Royal Letters Patent'.
