John Hall and his brother Ralph worked in partnership at two locations, John being responsible for production at Burslem and Ralph at the Swan Bank works in Tunstall. As early as 1814 it is suggested that they were more or less working independently but the partnership was not dissolved until 1822 after which he took his sons into partnership trading latterly as J.Hall & Sons. Three Marks are attributed to him and are found both printed and impressed

  • I. HALL
  • I. HALL & SONS

The latter sometimes taken to signify the work of the partnership with brother Ralph. Two major series of patterns were developed by him, the Quadruped Series and the Oriental Scenery Series. The Quadruped Series with several American subjects particularly sold to the North American market.
