- Additional Notes: Neale?s name marked wares that were produced at the Church Works, Hanley c.1778 ? 1792 but James Neale was not personally engaged with the manufacture of pottery unlike many of his contemporaries, Wedgwood, Spode, Turner etc. Neale operated in London, managing the shop and business, leaving Robert Wilson to run the works. These figures are typical of the small, well executed figures produced by James Neale & Co.
