"Bow porcelain is perhaps the best known and most characteristically English porcelain ever produced in this country. For its direct appeal and the freshness and originality shown in its wide range of shapes and decoration, its bright underglaze blue and its rich palette of enamel colours, it is unrivalled. The Bow factory was longer-lived and more prolific than almost any other 18th century porcelain factory, and it disputes with Chelsea the claim to have been the earliest firm in the field, starting production, as it did, in about 1747 -- and surviving to the late 1770s. It is remarkable that there has been no full-length study of Bow for over fifty years. [This] meticulously documented book, based on much first-hand research, will fill a serious gap in ceramic history."
