    Blashfield had a factory in Millwall, Poplar, with a sales outlet at No.1 Praed Street, Paddington, London, but moved to Stamford, Lincolnshire, in 1859 to be nearer to the clay-beds. He won medals for Terracotta at the International Exhibition of 1862, and a silver medal at the Paris International Exhibition of 1867. The company closed in 1875.
