Literature:

J.M Blashfield’s workshop was based in Millwall, Poplar with a sales outlet at No.1 Praed Street, Edgeware Road, London. He later moved to Stamford, Lincolnshire to be nearer the clay beds. He won medals for Terra Cotta at the Paris International Exhibition in 1867. One of his most important commissions was supplying architectural terracotta for the decoration of the new Museum of Fine Arts in Boston – unfortunately this stretched his resources too far and the Stamford Terracotta Factory closed in 1875.
