Edward Lycett, Designer for Faience Company, Brooklyn

Edward Lycett was like Charles Cartlidge a china designer from Staffordhsire in England.
He tried to set up a commercially viable porcelain factory in Greenpoint in the 1880’s I believe in the building that now houses the Red Star on Greenpoint Avenue.

He made beautiful pieces of China that were recently shown in the Brooklyn Museum.

Here is a link to a times article on him.
