Eric Knowles Comments : The father and son partnership of Henry and Richard Daniel are relatively little-known in the pantheon of Staffordshire potters, but produced some very highly regarded items during the twenty four years that their company flourished. They made very finely decorated, high quality wares and were patronised by the great and good of time as a result. Their relative obscurity owes much to the fact that few of their pieces are marked, and have become recognised as a source in their own right only over the last few decades with the discovery of archived documentation - previously they were often mistaken for pieces from other, more well known, sources.
