Rockingham: 1745-1842

£24.99

Product description

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. Although written primarily with collectors in mind, this book will appear to a much wider readership, researchers in ceramics, librarians, salesroom and museum staff and social historians. 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 to more everyday wares. This book, with its many new findings and previously unpublished documentary material, provide an indispensable guide to this Pottery's remarkably diverse products. This hardback book is in excellent condition and appears unread. It is signed (not dedicated) by both authors on the inside cover page. The book includes hundreds of colour and black and white photographs.
