About this title


Derby Porcelain 1748-1848, An Illustrated Guide , is certain to supercede the author's earlier Derby Porcelain as the standard reference book on the subject. It contains much new information and hitherto unpublished illustrations. This is a comprehensive study of the Nottingham Road Derby factory, its staff and its wares, with detailed biographies on anyone and everyone connected with production and sales during the factory's first hundred years.

About the Author:

John Twitchett has specialised in the history of Deby porcelain china for more than 30 years and is the leading authority on the Derby China Woks. He has been curator of the Royal Crown Derby Museum since 1982.
