Thomas Cooper

Thomas Cooper appears to have been involved in two potteries, the directories showing him in Longton from 1846 to 1864 and at Hanley from 1863 to 1867, the latter address appearing against the only jug he registered in 1862. He is not listed by Godden (but does appear in another of Geoffrey Godden's books – Encyclopaedia of British Porcelain Manufacturers). He does not appear to have made any other moulded jugs.
