Introduction

The Yorkshire porcelain manufactury Rockingham was very much a leader in fashion and taste, however, the company had humble origins. The pottery was established by Joseph Flint in 1745 on land in Swinton forming part of the estate of Wentworth Woodhouse owned by the 1st Marquis of Rockingham. This initial Swinton pottery mostly produce tiles and bricks, but there is evidence that by 1753 the works included a pot house. The pottery passed through the hands of a number of owners, Edward and Elizabeth Butler, William Maplass, Malpass and Fenney, Bingley and Woods and eventually the Leeds Parnership, achieved via a 21 year lease taken out by John Green of the Leeds Pottery and Bingley and Co. This partnership became steadily acrimonious and collapsed at the end of the 21-year lease. John Brameld, 6th son of the Swinton blacksmith George Bremeld, had heavily invested in the Swinton pottery and faced significant losses by the potential closure of the Swinton works. This led him to gain the financial support of the pottery’s landlord Earl Fitzwilliam to buy out the Leeds partners.

This exhibition will focus on pieces of Rockingham porcelain from the Brameld period to exemplify the way in which the patronage of the 4th Earl Fitzwilliam, nephew to the 2nd Marquis of Rockingham, enabled the Bramelds to develop the works into an influential and fashionable porcelain manufactury.
