Another firm that made ironstone wares was Doulton in Lambeth. They made hot water bottles, drainpipes etc. the firm relocated to Staffordshire in the 20th Century. When the Lambeth works closed, the office records - ledgers and employee records- were thrown into skips. Shock horror nowadays, as these records should be donated to the local record office for conservation and public access.

The clue that enabled me to solve the challenge was the Admiral's mention of the durability of the object in his second clue. That got me thinking of ironware and ironstone.
