Pratt Ware: English and Scottish Relief Decorated and Underglaze Coloured Earthenware, 1780-1840
The first book to deal exclusively with the subject of Pratt Ware is now available in a fully revised edition. Pratt Ware takes it name from a family firm of potters who worked in Staffordshire in the 18th and 19th centuries, but in fact this type of ware was made by many other potters not only in Staffordshire but also in Yorkshire, Liverpool, Sunderland, Tyneside, Devonshire and on the East and West coasts of Scotland. The wares made were very varied, as a glance through the book will reveal. They are also appealing often with a primitive quality, the generous use of a rich but limited range of oxide colours producing pieces which, like Oriental rugs, seem at home in most surroundings.
Now with over 600 illustrations, many reproduced in colour for the first time, a vast amount of research and travel have been involved in what is quite clearly a labour of love by the authors.
