Wood & Sons Historical Staffordshire & Transferware

Wood & Sons Historical Staffordshire

Enoch Wood came from a long line of Staffordshire potters. With his sons produced a vast quantity of transfer ware in Burslem, England from 1818 to 1846, most marked Wood & Sons.

Wood was one of the first Staffordshire potters to develop the burgeoning American export market after the War of 1812, eventually producing at least fifty-eight American views, over eighty English views and a series of French views – including a set related to LaFayette – all of which were sold in the new Republic.

First known for popular dark blue transfer wares, Wood & Sons went on to produce transfers in other colors and generic romantic designs to appeal to the fashionable mid-19th century taste.
