Early English Delftware from London and Virginia

Front Cover
Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, 1977 - Antiques & Collectibles - 125 pages

The history of early English delftware is also the first chapter in the chronicle of Britain's modern ceramic industry. To collectors of English pottery, examples of seventeenth-century delftware provide uninhibited splashes of color unequaled among the wares of later years; to this historical archaeologist reaching into the shadows of the past, shattered delftware dishes, mugs, porringers, and even chamber pots provide lanterns to light his way.†
