Josiah Wedgwood established a pottery at the former Ivy House works near Stoke-on-Trent in Burslem, England in 1759. Perfecting quality in clear-glazing inexpensively brought Wedgwood much success. In 1764, Wedgwood moved his pottery to the larger Brick House works in Burslem, and in 1766 was appointed "Potter to Her Majesty" by Queen Charlotte. Upon this appointment, Wedgwood named his creamware "Queen's Ware".
In 1769, Wedgwood built a new factory in Etruria, and formed a partnership with Thomas Bentley. The now famous Queen's Ware "Frog", which Wedgwood produced for Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia, was produced in the Etruria factory in 1774. By this time, Wedgwood's products included black basalt, creamware, jasper, pearlware, and redware. The product moonlight luster was made from 1805 to 1815. Then, bone china was produced from 1812-1822, and fairyland luster was introduced in 1915. All of the luster produced ended in 1932.
In 1906 the Etruria pottery was established as a museum. A new factory was built in Barlaston in 1940, and the museum was moved to this location. The Etruria works closed in 1950. During the 1960's and 1970's, Wedgwood acquired many English potteries including William Adams & Sons, Coalport, Susie Cooper, Crown Staffordshire, Johnson Brothers, Mason's Ironstone, J & G Meakin, Midwinter Companies, Precision Studios, and Royal Tuscan. Today, the Wedgwood group is one of the largest manufacturers of fine china and earthenware in the world.
