The vast array of ceramics manufactured by the venerable English manufactory Wedgwood, appear in over 500 stunning color photos. Early green-glazed earthenwares, Queen's Ware, black basalt, jasper ware, dry-bodied stonewares, majolica, bone china, and lustre ware forms range from teapots and tableware to statuary and Art Deco sculptures. The fascinating, detailed history of the development and dissemination of Wedgwood products includes a useful timeline for quick reference, bibliography, index, and values in the captions. This work should be required reading for every Anglophile and ceramics aficionado!
