It was established by Rachel Bennet in the early 1920's. Lawrence of Arabia commissioned a black tea service
to be sent to a friend in the desert, with edges of the plates, curved inwards to prevent sand from getting into
the food. The service was made from Purbeck Ball Clay based mixture. Later Lawrence ordered another tea
service for himself and this can be seen at Clouds Hill. Thomas Hardy's Widow ordered one having seen the
one used by Lawrence. The Pottery closed in 1939.
