Relief tile, porcelain spinning rings (Trenton Evening Times, Tuesday, September 4, 1883)
“In the fall of 1883 the Trent Faience Works was about to be set up as a spin-off of the Harris Manufacturing Company, specifically to manufacture porcelain spinning rings, for which a major market was envisaged in the textile industry. The works in Millham would have the capacity to turn out 200,000 rings a week, but at the time could only make around 50,000 as the business was heavily engaged in making relief tile.”
