BRIEF HISTORY OF BISHOP & STONIER Bishop and Stonier Partnerships:

Key dates:

1851 - 1866 Livesley Powell & Co. Old Hall Lane & Miles Bank, Hanley.

1867 - 1878 Powell & Bishop. Parliament Row & Stafford Street Works, Hanley.

1878 - 1891 Powell, Bishop & Stonier. Stafford Street Works, Hanley.

1891 - 1933 Bishop & Stonier, Various addresses, Hanley.

1933 - 1939 George Jones & Sons bought the company and continued use of the Bisto trade mark.

In 1891 Duncan Watson Bishop and John Stonier formed a partnership in Hanley, Staffordshire and continued in business until 1939. Prior to this, in 1845 the Bishop family were partnership with Livesley Powell & Co. It was formed in 1845 by William Livesley, Edwin Powell and Frederick Bishop. The Livesley families were potters in Hanley; Edwin Powell was a potter who had been apprenticed at Dimmocks of Hanley; and Frederick Bishop was a lawyer providing financial support to the venture. Livesley Powell produced a variety of bodies including china, parian, and ironstone china and used transfer printing. They are reported to have exhibited at the 1851 Great Exhibition.

In 1866 William Livesley retired and the partnership became known as Powell and Bishop. In 1876, Powell and Bishop exhibited at the Philadelphia Exhibition.

In 1878 Powell and Bishop were joined by John Stonier. In 1880, Powell, Bishop and Stonier registered a new trademark to accompany their ivory or cream colored earthenware. This shows a seated Chinese man under a sunshade or umbrella containing the words ORIENTAL IVORY - their name for the earthenware body. This oriental ivory body and their green bodied porcelain were ideal vehicles for Japanese inspired designs which were popular in the Victorian period. These often featured asymmetrical floral and bird designs.

In 1891 Duncan Watson Bishop and John Stonier created a new company trade mark BISTO, using the first letters of their surnames. This name was incorporated into the back stamp of the period - the Wand of Caduceus. In 1906 they were using an advertising slogan in the trade press ' The sun never sets on Bisto wares'.

In 1933, the company was taken over by George Jones & Sons. They continued to use the wand mark and also the mark of a bishop until 1939.
