A newly married couple setting up home in the s or early s might have chosen the cheap, but contemporary, Homemaker range of ceramics for their dinner or tea service. Homemaker combined an award-winning modern shape, Metro, by Tom Arnold, with a pattern by Enid Seeney showing contemporary furniture and household items against a background of black lines. Enid Seeney designed the pattern in for new shapes designed by Tom Arnold. She called the new design ‘Furniture’. However, executives thought it might be too radical for public tastes and public reaction at an exhibition in Blackpool was disappointing. However, Seeney still believed in the design and her team produced a prototype coffee set. Homemaker came to the attention of Woolworth’s only by chance.

The Ridgway family was one of the important dynasties manufacturing Staffordshire pottery , with a large number of family members and business names, over a period from the s to the late 20th century. In their heyday in the midth century there were several different potteries run by different branches of the family. Most of their wares were earthenware , but often of very high quality, but stoneware and bone china were also made.
Many earlier pieces were unmarked and identifying them is difficult or impossible. Typically for Staffordshire, the various businesses, initially set up as partnerships, changed their official names rather frequently, and often used different trading names, so there are a variety of names that can be found. The various Ridgway companies made a huge range of wares, carefully following market demand.
They can generally be described as serving the middle and upper parts of the market, avoiding the cheapest popular wares. As with other factories, a great amount of good quality earthenware was transfer-printed with heavily elaborate designs, mostly in a durable underglaze cobalt blue. Much of this went to the American market, and was given American designs of landscapes the “Beauties of America” series dates to about and national heroes.
From porcelain , that is to say bone china , was produced, in a great profusion of patterns, for which many of the pattern books survive. The styles are typical for the period, with many flowers, landscapes, and some modified Neoclassical and Chinese or “Anglo-oriental” treatments. Wedgwood jasperware effects were rendered in glazed porcelain. Much of the porcelain was also transfer-printed, or combined this and china painting by hand. In later periods, the many branches of the family businesses maintained a similar position in the market, and followed design trends at a rather safe distance.
