(1650 - 1900)
From the latter half of the seventeenth century, experiments in stoneware production began in England, centred initially in London. The earliest evidence for production comes from a migrant potter's kiln at Woolwich Ferry, which produced stoneware in the German tradition between 1650 and 1700. However the main impetus of stoneware production in England begins with the establishment of John Dwight's Fulham pottery between 1671 and 1703. The early London stoneware mirrored continental forms, concentrating on drinking vessels, but by the 1800's the bulk of stoneware products were becoming more varied and more utilitarian in nature. The industry at this stage had become centred on Lambeth, especially with the establishment of Doulton and Watts Pottery at Lambeth High Street (Later Doulton & Co.). Several other stoneware potteries also operated in Lambeth between the mid eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, including James Stiff and Sons and Stephen Green's Imperial pottery.
The late nineteenth century saw a renaissance in stoneware production in London, through the arts and crafts movement. Doulton and Co's Lambeth art house produced some fine examples of individual stoneware vessels, as did the Martin Brothers. However by 1914 the stoneware industry had largely died out in London.
