Elijah Cotton Ltd. was founded by Elijah Cotton in 1880 in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire. Although the marks say “established in 1758”, that is only in reference to the building Elijah occupied, a much older pottery had been established there in 1758. The Nelson Ware brand was introduced in 1913. During the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, Elijah Cotton Ltd. was one of the premier manufacturers in Stoke-on-Trent, and they were part of what is known as “The Potteries”. Nelson Pottery became popular for their jugs and became the largest manufacturer of jugs in the world. When Elijah died, his oldest son, Edward, took over the business. Late joined by his younger brother Arthur who was still running the business in 1956 with his son Nigel. The brand “Lord Nelson Ware” was not introduced until the late 1940’s or early 1950’s. Lord Nelson Ware was an extremely popular brand of pottery in the early-twentieth century and continued to be produced until 1981.
