How would one recognise an argyll, a trembleuse or a bachelor's set? And how can one identify a pineapple stand, a spoon warmer or a coach pot? Such items were in regular use in daily life in the nineteenth century and all were made of pottery. In Ceramic Bygones many such intriguing but obsolete items are described and illustrated. About the author Robert Copeland grew up in the family which had owned the Spode manufactory since 1833. Now retired, he remains a trustee of the Spode Museum Trust. Other titles for Shire by this author are: Blue and White Transfer-printed Pottery Spode Wedgwood Ware (currently out of print)
