About this title
This new , comprehensive and well-illustrated account of the Rockingham Pottery, one of England's major nineteenth century porcelain manufactories, traces its unusual development and diverse wares from 1745, when it was founded, to its closure almost a century later. Archaeological evidence has been used to identify eighteenth century slip-decorated pottery, fine unmarked creamware, pearlware and the early products of the following century. Characteristic shapes and types of decoration are illustrated, including the complete range of transfer-printed designs on pottery. In porcelain, for which the Rockingham Works is justly renowned, its tea and dessert services, including those made for royalty and nobility, are described and illustrated, as are figures and the many ornamental items. All known factory marks are shown and guidance is given to help collectors avoid spurious wares. Many of the pieces illustrated are in private collections. They vary from items of extraordinary beauty and richness toAbout the Author:
