Sampson Hancock & Sons was an earthenware manufacturer at Bridge Works, Stoke, Stoke-on-Trent. One source records that around 1920 china manufacture was started. Sampson Hancock, a prominent Wesleyan, started potting in 1857, operating independently and in partnership with others. In 1891 he established the business of Sampson Hancock & Sons. Sampson died in 1900 and the business was continued by his three sons - Jabez, Harry and Arthur.
In 1935 the business was in financial difficulty and was made bankrupt.

This lovely flow blue plate, circa 1920, is the "Acme" pattern consisting of a wide blue band dividing the plate in half. Each side is decorated with gorgeous blue individual blossoms and leaves against the white porcelain. The gently scalloped rim and central band is outlined with gold, the blossoms have gold highlights, with the remainder of the plate adorned with sponged gold. The plate measures 8 1/2" in diameter and is faintly stamped "Acme - S H & Sons". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. Unusual and beautiful pattern.
