Pratt ware means two different things. It was an early Staffordshire pottery, cream-colored with colored decorations, made by Felix Pratt during the late eighteenth century. There was also Pratt ware made with transfer designs during the mid-nineteenth century in Fenton, England. The company that made Pratt pottery in Fenton was F. and R. Pratt Company. Reproductions of the transfer-printed Pratt are being made.
