A TEA-ny bit OF HISTORY:

Sovereign Potters Limited (1933 – 1973) was formed by W. G. Pulkingham and Alfred Etherington with the financial support of a group of local businessmen.  It was one of Canada’s largest manufacturers of fine porcelain and earthenware with a booming business that peaked in 1946 – 1947, supplying army china when the war broke.  On July 1, 1947, Sovereign Potters Ltd. was purchased by Johnson Brothers (Hanley) Ltd and in 1952, W. H. Hall was sent to become president of the Canadian operations.  Manufacture of dinnerware continued until 1958 and then after, it concentrated on the production of ceramic wall tiles and decorated blanks sent from the parent company in England.
