A visual survey of English ceramic production during the 17th and 18th centuries, based on the works in the Henry H. Weldon Collection. During this period “English pottery, at first firmly based on mediaeval traditions and primarily intended for a local market, underwent a profound transformation with many potting areas, especially Staffordshire, becoming international centres for ceramic production and taste.” – The Publisher.
The book contains images of 450 pieces of English ceramics.
