The plates are elegant in their simplicity and Rosedawn was manufactured from 1925 to 1987. The plates have a rose pink body. The rim is widely scalloped.

Judging from the backstamp, these plates dates to the 1920's. Each of the available dinner plates (at this writing we have 3) is in Mint condition having no crazing, chips, or cracks. The plates appear to have been very gently used and lovingly cared for.

The dinner plates measures a 10-1/8 inches in diameter.

Earthenware and Sanitary ware manufacturers. The four 'Johnson Brothers' were Alfred, Frederick, Henry and Robert (Grandsons of the famous Meakin lineage) - sons of Robert Johnson.

Alfred, Frederick began production at the Charles Street works, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent in 1883 for the manufacture of durable Earthenware, which they called "White Granite". In 1888, Henry joined them. In addition to manufacturing well-potted white ware, they began producing under-glaze printed ware for which they became famous. Due to the increased demand for pottery after the Civil War, they opened up two new factories in Hanley close to their original factory. By 1898, they had five different factories producing tableware. [Charles Street works, Imperial Works, Hanley Works & Trent Works in Hanley and the Scotia Road works in Tunstall).

Robert, moved to New York in the United States of America around 1896 to establish a presence in the tableware market that was emerging. Johnson Brothers tableware was becoming very popular in America due to its inexpensive and durable product.

Johnson Brothers continued its growth in the tableware industry into World War I. The war taxed the company's work force, shipping capabilities, and raw materials supplies. When the war was over, production was able to resume at its pre-war pace.

At the start of the Twenties, new shapes, patterns, and bodies were introduced and the "Dawn" range of colored bodies began for which Johnson Brothers became very well known. New methods were developed for making halloware items which allowed for a more rapid production over the old method of using pressed clay. At the end of the Twenties, the grandsons of the founders entered the business.
