This is the first book to explore the work of the forgotten ceramics concern - Chetham & Woolley. The original partnership of James Chetham and Richard Woolley established a factory in Longton, Staffordshire in 1795. The partnership was responsible for developing a new ceramic body - semi-transparent stoneware, properly termed Feldspathic Stoneware. In its day, the Chetham & Woolley factory occupied a very important position in the Staffordshire ceramics industry. Until recent research carried out by Colin Wyman practically all memory of Chetham & Woolley had been lost. This book re-establishes the factory's well-deserved reputation.
