Vietato, you should inform Find Art Information organisation, that they should update the date E Steele was born and when he died on their records.

Having done some research online, I found that that Edwin Steele (E Steele) was born in 1803 and died in 1871. He was the son of Thomas Steele.

In Rockingham china and porcelain patter book, states that Edwin Steele was a painter and enamaller at this factory, and he was the son of Thomas Steel who was also an artist at the factory before his son.

Thomas Steel moved back to Staffordshire to work at the Minton factory, taking his son with him and they lived in Stoke on Trent. As there is an Edwin J. Steele who was born in 1861 in Stoke on Trent and who died in 1933 in Birmingham, which fits with the dates on the paintings of his son.
