Description

In Volume 4 of this all-encompassing, multi-volume set, which catalogues the vast range of enamel-painted figures produced mostly in the Staffordshire Potteries between 1780 and 1840, figures portraying family, children at play, the Temperance Movement, classical subjects, busts, and much more are covered. The text discusses distinguishing real works from reproductions and evaluating their quality. It includes over 1100 brilliant colour photographs, as well as information about the potters and design sources, along with a values guide. Among the figures are contemporary portrayals of weddings, christenings, and other family scenes, forms emblematic of the seasons, elements, and continents, and a multitude of characters portraying classical subjects. Many of these pieces are hauntingly beautiful and have long been hidden from the public eye. These impressive portrayals give us rare glimpses of a world that has vanished long ago.
