Allied English Potteries,
1964 the Lawley Group was merged with Thomas C. Wild and Sons Ltd and changed its name to Allied English Potteries (AEP). Subsidiaries included Shore and Coggins, Chapmans (Longton), Paragon China Co, Alcock, Lindley and Bloore.
1971 S. Pearson and Son acquired Doulton and Co and the outstanding interests in Allied English Potteries that it did not already own. As a result Royal Albert, as a part of Allied English Potteries, joined with Royal Doulton. Thus three key names – Royal Doulton, Royal Albert, and Mintons – came under the umbrella brand of Doulton Home.
