Blue And White Printed Pottery Volume 1

When The Dictionary of Blue and White Printed Pottery 1780-1880 was first published in 1982, it was immediately acclaimed as the standard reference work for these popular and much collected wares. Awarded the Library Association's McColvin Medal for an outstanding reference book, it has since become a bestseller in both the UK and North America. Designed as a comprehensively cross-referenced companion to the original Dictionary, this second volume includes over 1,000 new or extended entries. These cover many previously unrecorded patterns, recent attributions, newly discovered design sources and a significant number of additional manufacturers and retailers. Some of the more interesting wares made abler the original deadline of 1880 have also been included. The social history behind the potter's choice of subjects is quite fascinating and, wherever possible, entries include details of die people or events which inspired the patterns or their titles. An Appendix illustrates unidentified patterns, important marked examples of which may yet be unearthed by a diligent collector. Interest in these wares has increased dramatically in recent years and the enthusiasm shown for 'blue and white' continues to grow. This second volume of the Dictionary, produced in the same attractive format as the first and with some 450 illustrations, 28 in full colour, is an essential reference work for collectors, dealers and auctioneers alike.
