    Default Tams Pottery, Stoke on Trent aug 2009


    visited with little laura
    history stolen from her report:)

    A bit of history....
    The Crown Works in Stoke is where John Tams founded Tams pottery in 1875, the business remained under family ownership until 2000 when it went into administration... after a brief spell as a PLC group they quickly and very sadly went downhill forcing the company to shut up shop.
    Mugs Galore !!!
    Some interesting internetty bits...
