Dunn, Bennett and Company were an earthenware and ironstone manufacturer based at Hanley and then Burslem in Staffordshire. They produced tableware for hotels, ships and railways, so it's not unusual to found pieces that are branded in some way.
Founded in 1875 at Hanley, Staffordshire by William Dunn and William Wood-Bennett
In 1886 they moved to the Royal Victoria Pottery in Burslem, Staffordshire
In 1908 they became a limited company
In 1968 they were bought by Doulton & Company
In 1982 Royal Doulton sold their interest in Dunn, Bennett & Company (and also Steelite) in a management buy-out
