The Art of the Old English Potter

£90.00

Product description

L. M. Solon was an educated potter with an eclectic taste, whose own sophisticated porcelain was far removed from the humble early English pottery described in this book, yet he was among the first to point out its aesthetic worth. His own collection of early English pottery was one of the first of its kind and this book, which was a pioneer on the subject, is delightfully illustrated with his own drawings of pots from that great collection which was sadly dispersed in 1912.
Bound in green with a brown leather spine with gilt lettering, it is number 230 in a limited edition of 250, signed "Bemrose & Sons". It has hand cut pages resulting in pleasantly rustic edges. Text pages are mildly foxed, however all text is clear, as are the charming illustrations throughout.
A beautiful, collectible item.
