New Hall Hanley Pottery in Staffordshire England was founded in 1899 by Robert Audley. IN the early 1900s it was a major manufacturer of toilet sets and jugs. After the first world war and a rebuild of the pottery the company moved to produce tableware. The Great Depression and WWII caused difficulties for the business , but following WWII production was higher than ever. The New Hall Pottery Co ceased trading in 1956 and its molds were acquired by Royal Art Pottery (a member of the Colclough Group).
The most collectable item produced by New Hall was a range called Boumier Ware created by Lucien Boullemier whi had previously worked at Minton.
