From Printed British pottery and Porcelain 1750-1900: In the 1820s Ralph Stevenson entered into partnership with Samuel Alcock and Augustus Aldborough Lloyd Williams. Indeed there may have been two partnerships, one between all three parties to make bone china and one between Stevenson and Lloyd Williams to make earthenware and stone-china. Ralph Stevenson converted a “Colour Manufactory” that he owned into a factory for the use of the china-making partnership. The arrangement continued until 1826 when the London Gazette announced that the Partnership carried on by Ralph Stevenson, Samuel Alcock, and Augustus Aldborough Lloyd Williams, at Cobridge … as Manufacturers of China, under the firm of Ralph Stevenson, Alcock, and Williams is this day dissolved by mutual consent; and that in future … is intended to be carried on by the said Samuel Alcock and Ralph Stevenson under the firm of Samuel Alcock & Co… Dated this 11th day of August 1826.
Bowl is in very good shape with only slight wear on gold trim. I also have a matching teacup listed.
