Staffordshire Potters 1781-1900: A Comprehensive List Assembled from Contemporary Directories with Selected Marks
Antique Collectors' Club, 2002 - Antiques & Collectibles - 408 pages
This book presents a comprehensive record of manufacturers working in the Staffordshire Potteries in the period between 1781 and 1900. The area produced some 90% of the pots made in England and is of prime importance in the study of British ceramics. The information has been extracted from all known directories published during the period, involving more than 10,000 entries from some 61 volumes.
Introductory chapters cover historical aspects of the survey, a fascinating evaluation of the area under review and information on the directory authors and publishers. These are followed by the main alphabetical list of more than 3,000 manufacturers, the most comprehensive record of Staffordshire potters ever published, including much information unavailable in existing literature. This main list is followed by reprints of the original directory listings in date order, backed up with appropriate indexes.
The work, which is heavily illustrated throughout, covers all potters, regardless of their many products, working between 1781, the date of the earliest surviving directory, and the beginning of the twentieth century, by far the most popular period for collectors.
