Creamware (Monographs on Pottery & Porcelain)

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Cream coloured earthenware was Towners first foray in the broader subject of creamware not concentrating on Leeds. This is virtually a new work in comparison with the scope of the original. The discoveries of new potteries coming to light are covered in this book. Before this few knew of Cockpit Hill, Melbourn and Pomona creamware outside the precious confines of the English Ceramic Circle, of whom Towner was a stalwart.He published much in their Transactions and here he gives the opportunity for us mere mortals to examine his findings.
Thankfully he broaches the subject of non-english creamware; it may have dominated the world market but was not by any means the sole country to provide for the ubiquitous demand.
In modern parlance he "owned" creamware, not just for the literal sense of many pieces of his collection being illustrated in this book but for the depth and breadth of his research.
At two hundred and thirty six pages with ninetysix pages of plates and eight in colour, line drawings of terminals ,handles and spouts plus a comprehensive section on marks it will be a long time before a book on the subject of creamware supercedes this volume.
