Quality porcelain was produced by Bodley from 1875 to 1892. Edwin James Drew Bodley worked at Samuel Alcock's Old Hill Pottery at Burslem, which had been divided into separate china and earthernware factories in 1867. The china works (now called Crown Works) was taken over first by Bodley and Diggory, and then by Bodley & Son, until Edwin J. D. Bodley began to do business under his own name in June of 1875. Bodley produced fine quality porcelains with Oriental-style flowers. Cups and saucers in the Aesthetic style are highly regarded by collectors. - **Source, Collectible Cups & Saucers by Jim & Susan Harran
