Hi Tracy

Thanks for the interesting submission.

Stoke producer, F. Winkle & Co were first established under the name Winkle and Wood in 1885 at the Pearl Pottery, Hanley. They continued until 1931 when they were taken over by giants Ridgway. 'Colonial Works' was the name of their pottery in Stoke.

They produced ware which they branded as:-

Agra

Old Chelsea

Whieldon Ware

Sometimes, their pottery mark was just the initials F W & Co. The title 'LTD' was only included after 1911.

Hope this information is useful.

Best regards,
