The Dictionary of Worcester Porcelain: Volume 1, 1751-1851

by John Sandon

Hardcover in Dust Jacket in Near Fine Condition



From Library Journal:

This is the first of a projected two volumes that will cover the entire history of Worcester porcelain from the founding of the first factory in 1751 to the present day. Sandon, director of ceramics at the Phillips auction house in London, is one of the two foremost authorities on Worcester porcelain today. (The other is his father, Henry, who will write the second book.) This volume contains a historical survey to 1851; a dictionary section covering patterns, types of ware, and persons connected with the porcelain works; and two appendixes. The photographs are numerous and excellent. Although the entries in the dictionary section are very detailed, with numerous cross references, an index would still have been useful. Nevertheless, this book surpasses previous ones on Worcester porcelain. Highly recommended for decorative arts collections. --Constance Ashmore Fairchild, Univ. of Illinois Lib., Urbana-Champaign
