Notes : William Littler's Longton Hall pottery was one of the first British porcelain producers. It remained in business for little more than a decade. The relief-moulded leaf and strawberry dishes are the most widely recognised products, alongside the "snowman" figures produced during the early years. Pieces decorated with moulded and coloured tulip petals are widely admired as are pieces which exhibit the work of the 'Trembly Rose' painter, such as this example.
