The Knottingley Pottery commenced in 1793 and operated under the name Tomlinson, Foster and Co. In June 1798, Ralph Wedgwood joined the Knottingley partnership, which was promptly renamed Tomlinson, Foster, Wedgwood and Co.--any smart business man would have wanted to add the famed Wedgwood name to the firm's letterhead. Ralph had lots of new ideas but alas the partnership did not have the capital to support them, so it was dissolved a mere eighteen months later. Our unknown lady dates from the period 1798-99. Nice to be able to date a figure with precision. Now we need to find out who she is. Any guesses?
