Hadley and Sons

James Hadley was apprenticed in the 1850s to Kerr & Binns of Worcester and by 1870 he became the company’s principal modeller. However, in 1875 he decided to leave and set up his own modelling studio. Hadley wares were made using coloured clay mouldings in dark blue, green and brown which distinguish them from similar objects made by the Royal Worcester Factory.
