Alfred Meakin, also known as A. Meakin, was one of the six British pottery companies that joined forces during the British Empire Exhibition at Wembley in 1924 - 1925 to craft "The Cup of Knowledge" divination tea cups and saucers. Alfred Meakin was the only pottery of the six that produced cups and saucers on a cream-coloured clay body that was not English bone china. That is, being a lower fired ware, the pieces to not "ring like a bell."
