Johnson Brothers was a British tableware manufacturer and exporter that was noted for its early introduction of "semi-porcelain" tableware.
They were among the most successful Staffordshire potteries which produced tableware, much of it exported to the United States, from the 1890s through the 1960's.
The pattern "Old Britain Castles" was introduced in 1930, followed by "Historic America" in 1938. During the 1930s, the original factory in Charles Street closed, and new technology was introduced with the development of modern systems of firing using electricity rather than coal. By the mid 1940s Johnson Brothers was one of the world's largest manufacturers of earthenware and ironstone china.
Excellent condition, no chips, cracks or signs of restoration. You will notice a couple of tiny bubbles in the glaze (see photo's)
