John Bennett emigrated from England where he was director of the faience department of the Lambeth pottery of Messrs. Doulton & Co. He came to New York in 1876 and soon built a kiln on Lexington Avenue and later others on East 24th Street. Edwin Atlee Barber credits Bennett with introducing his faience decorating method to the U.S. (See Barber, Pottery and Porcelain of the U.S., pp. 305-306).
