Founded in 1875 Hudson and Middleton, designers and manufacturers of 100% British quality fine bone china, is one of the oldest potteries in England. True to its heritage the operation still runs from the original premises in the heart of Staffordshire. Customers include Harrods, The National Trust, English Heritage and the John Lewis Partnership alongside bespoke independent fine china and glass shop retailers and consumers. The brand and products remain high-end despite pressures to commercialise cheaper processes and components. Factory facilities have been modernised through the decades but traditional potting and decorating techniques and hand-skilled operatives, associated with the finest quality production, remain at the core of Hudson’s ethos.
