Synopsis: There is probably no one who knows more about Worcester porcelain than that famous father and son team of Henry and John Sandon. From an early age John Sandon helped his father with excavations and research within the factory itself and Volume I of this "Dictionary" contains detailed new information on recent excavations. Some major finds from the lowest (earliest) levels of occupation on the site which throw a very important new light on the first years of the factory are illustrated here for the first time. As well as the 600 or more dictionary entries Volume I includes a historical survey, an illustrated section on marks, extracts from contemporary accounts of visits to the factories and a bibliography. The book is aimed at ceramic historians, collectors, curators, dealers, libraries.

From Library Journal: This is the first of a projected two volumes that will cover the entire history of Worcester porcelain from the founding of the first factory in 1751 to the present day. Sandon, director of ceramics at the Phillips auction house in London, is one of the two foremost authorities on Worcester porcelain today. (The other is his father, Henry, who will write the second book.) This volume contains a historical survey to 1851; a dictionary section covering patterns, types of ware, and persons connected with the porcelain works; and two appendixes. The photographs are numerous and excellent. Although the entries in the dictionary section are very detailed, with numerous cross references, an index would still have been useful. Nevertheless, this book surpasses previous ones on Worcester porcelain. Highly recommended for decorative arts collections. --Constance Ashmore Fairchild, Univ. of Illinois Lib., Urbana-Champaign

Book Description The Antique Collectors' Club, Woodbridge, Suffolk, 1993. Hardbound. Blue cloth with gilt letters on spine & front cover, black & color-illustrated dust jacket. 384 pp., 101 color and 465 bw plates. "Contains detailed new information which has emerged following excavations on the original factory sites. Illustrated for the first time are some major finds which shed new light on the first few years of porcelain making in Worcester. As well as more than six hundred dictionary entries, Volume I includes a complete historical survey, the most comprehensive illustrated section on marks to date, extracts from contemporary visits to the factories and a select bibliography. A significant section on redecoration classifies the controversial pieces which have been altered at some time to increase their desirability, suggesting when and where this redecoration took place, and highlights pitfalls for collectors. For the first time details of every principal workman connected with the factories who can be identified, every named pattern, and all the principal shapes and forms of decoration are gathered together in one volume. The Dictionary of Worcester Porcelain is the most comprehensive study of these important porcelain factories and is bound to become the standard work of reference on the subject." (dj). VG (May have former owner's name written on an opening page, otherwise clean.). Bookseller Inventory # 105250
