Description:
1883 Image shows the pottery yard looking towards the office. The row is flanked by large cane shaped kiln's. Founded by Richard Humble and John and Joshua Green around 1770, the pottery began trading under the name Humble, Green & Co before becoming Hartley, Green & Co in 1781. Famous for the production of creamware - a fireglazed pottery with an intricate pierced patterning and decorative detail - the pottery was exported to Europe. Another product of the pottery was Block Egyptian Ware, a red earthenware with a black glaze. Closed in 1881, Leeds City Council reopened the pottery in 1983, however it closed again in 1986.
