The development of creamware and pearlware in the late 18th century heralded a revolution in ceramic decoration. For the first time, the British middle classes could afford to buy tablewares painted in blue in the sought-after 'Chinese' style. Underglaze blue painted pieces are keenly collected today, but until now there has been no comprehensive study of the types of design used, and the variation in pattern and painting styles from factory to factory. This work is the product of 20 years of comparing and researching these wares.
