Pratt Ware 1780-1840: English & Scottish Relief Decorated & Underglaze Coloured Earthenware Summary

Pratt Ware 1780-1840: English & Scottish Relief Decorated & Underglaze Coloured Earthenware by John Lewis

This is a revised and enlarged edition of this extensively-researched book. "Pratt Ware" takes its name from a family firm of potters who worked in Staffordshire in the 18th and 19th centuries. This type of ware was also made, however, by many other potters, not only in Staffordshire but also in Yorkshire, Liverpool, Sunderland, Tyneside, Devonshire and on the East and West coasts of Scotland. The authors trace Pratt Ware to these various manufacturers and discuss the wide range of pieces which were produced. This book, now with the benefits of all the latest findings on the subject, an additional 16 pages and full colour throughout, is a study by authors with over 50 years' experience of collecting Pratt Ware. The numerous black and white and colour photographs, many of rare and unfamiliar objects, have nearly all been taken especially for this book from Museums and Private Collections around the world. In many cases the designs on the jugs and mugs are shown alongside the engravings, paintings or jasper ware cameos on which they were based.
