English Pottery 1620-1840


      • Product Description: An informed and accessible account of the evolution of English ceramics over 200 years. This new study is one of the first to give a broad picture of the pottery trade in the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries, covering the main types of ware from the beginnings of delftware, through the rise of the Staffordshire potteries, to the decline of fine pottery brought about by mass production for the export market and the hugely expanding urban population. It provides an overview of the ramifications of the trade during the period, framing an informed but accessible account exploring themes such as the fashion for collecting, trade and distribution, export markets and much more.

        Robin Hildyard was formerly a curator in the Ceramics & Glass department at the V&A and is a leading expert in English pottery and early English glass.
