Beauville Antiques


The firm of GL Ashworth & Bros Ltd was founded in 1862 in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, producing earthenware and ironstone, later becoming the manufacturers of the famous MASONS PATENT IRONSTONE CHINA, and using the Masons mark.

They continued to produce china with their own marks, however, and sometimes, as with the MANDARIN pattern the mark features BOTH names. The firm ceased trading in 1969.

Most of the items on these pages have an ASHWORTH backstamp. We do plan to add some MASONS items at a later date - watch this space!
