Description

In its centenary year of 1862, the Maling factory was producing 90 per cent of the jam jars used in England and Scotland. Thousands more were exported and they became synonymous with Rington's tea and Keillers marmalade, other uniquely British companies. With the aid of over 50 illustrations, this book traces the development of Maling and other Tyneside potteries and explores the makers' marks. A thoroughly detailed and perfect introduction to the different designs created, "Maling and Other Tyneside Pottery" provides the opportunity to marvel at the beauty of such craftsmanship.
