John, taking the Cauldon works while William went his own way with the Bell works inherited from uncle George. John Ridgway, was appointed Potter to Her Majesty Queen Victoria, earning a high commendation at the 1851 Exhibition.
However, all these accolades were not enough, and by the 1940's The Ridgway Pottery was preparing to merger with the Booths & Colclough China Company.
Royal Doulton acquired the two firms in the 1960's. Some of the brands associated with the Ridgway Pottery / Colclough / Booths are Royal Vale, Royal Stanley, Royal Cauldon, Royal Adderley (floral and Figurine China factory), Royal Semi Porcelain and Portland (tea and dinner ware).
