Johnson Brothers, a renowned British tableware manufacturer and exporter, gained recognition for pioneering the use of "semi-porcelain." They stood out as one of Staffordshire's most successful pottery producers, specializing in crafting tableware for the American market from the 1890s to the 1960s. Many of their designs achieved widespread popularity and continue to be sought after by collectors today, including beloved patterns such as "Dawn," "Old Britain Castles," and "Eternal Beau." The company derived its name from the founding quartet: Alfred, Frederick, Henry, and Robert Johnson. Interestingly, their father married the daughter of the esteemed master potter Alfred Meakin. Johnson Brothers operated as part of the Wedgwood group from 1968 to 2015, until it was acquired by Fishers, who later discontinued Johnson Bros. products.

An explanation of the "EIT" mark on the back of the plate.

The "EIT" mark on pottery typically refers to "English Ironstone Tableware." It was not associated with a specific pottery manufacturer but rather a term used to describe a type of ceramic tableware produced by various English pottery companies. These companies may have used the "EIT" mark or stamp to indicate that their wares were made from English Ironstone, a durable and affordable ceramic material popular during the 19th and 20th centuries.
