Samuel Alcock

Samuel Alcock (1799-1848) began his own production of pottery in 1828, at the Hill Top Works in Burslem. Some time in the 1830’s he began to manufacture porcelain as well as pottery, and went on to produce a wide variety of pieces decorated by printing, painting, and elaborately applied 3d flowers.   
The porcelain is a beautiful bone china mixture which is distinctive enough to be identified on its own. Decoration included bold ground colours, well painted fruit & flowers, and finely detailed scenes. Marks are rare (on porcelain in particular) but a pattern number will usually be evident. These numbers quickly increased, and in the later 1830’s a fractional pattern number was introduced,  ie. 1/1234.
Samuel died in 1848, having built up a reputation as one of the better manufacturers of the Staffordshire Potteries.
