Barker Bros

This Staffordshire Pottery was established in 1876 at the Meir Works, Longton.

We specialise in their pretty and collectable Fantasy pattern, an all-over chintz-like design of handpainted flowers on a leafy blue transfer background. See below for the two versions of this design, and for the hard-to find Nasturtium pattern.

Barker Bros Fantasy (1912-30) 
Barker Bros Fantasy (1937+) 
Barker Bros Nasturtium


The earliest version of this pattern has the MEIR WORKS LONGTON backstamp with a fleur-de-lys logo, and dates from c. 1912-30.

More recent examples have a backstamp featuring a crown and the words ROYAL TUDOR WARE. These can be dated 1937+.


Another attractive chinz-like pattern that we occasionally have in stock.

As far as we know this was only made during the MEIR WORKS period, c. 1912-30.

NB: We only deal in BARKER BROS' Fantasy and Nasturtium range
and regret we cannot respond to queries relating to other patterns.

We specialise in English tableware from the 1920s and 30s and ship worldwide from our base in London, UK.
