See the Potteries List section for the Barton Hill Pottery.

The Pottery had been run by Alfred Niblett and the Pottery was still one of Niblett’s assets when he was declared bankrupt in 1888. It seems likely that Stephen Alfred Hollister was running the Pottery, probably on Niblett’s behalf, for only a short period of time.

1886-88 Stephen Alfred Hollister ran the Barton Hill Pottery.

There Pottery was sold in 1889.
