Johnson Brothers - Dinnerware

Johnson Brothers China, founded by Alfred, Frederick and Henry Johnson, began in the late 1800s in Hanley, Stoke on the Trent, England. The company flourished and eventually had five manufacturing facilities. It became a division of Waterford Wedgwood of Josiah Wedgwood & Ltd in 1968. The company currently produces Franciscan China (made in China). Wedgwood became part of WWRD Holdings in 2009.
