The book discuss aspects of ceramic developments in
Great Britain from around the 1720s onwards that brought about, or
had a bearing on, the founding of the Worcester porcelain manufactory.
The book features rare and significant wares (dating prior to 1760)
from the Museum of Royal Worcester, other museums, auction houses
and private collections. The two main pathways discussed are:
1/ The pottery route from Staffordshire & Stourbridge (including
the approximate site of William Shore's pottery and the probable Robert
Podmore connection); Podmore's move to Worcester, the Doctor Wall/
William Davis experiments; and the probable wares produced at Worcester
prior to the purchase of the Lund's Bristol concern. A discussion
of the early careers of William Shore and Benjamin Quarman.
2/ New evidence and discussion of porcelain experimentation from the
1720s onwards embracing soaprock; Thomas Briand's porcelain manufactory
in South London; a survey of A Marked wares; Edward Heylyn
and Bow; the evolution and failure of the Limehouse manufactory; the
wares of the Limehouse manufactory including many images; the emergence
of Benjamin Lund at Bristol and his incredible life story; the possible
Redcliff site of Lund's porcelain works; the wares of the Bristol
manufactory including many images; associations with Delftware; and
other aspects of glasshouses and ceramics in Bristol.
The book tracks the development and the progression of the Warmstry
manufactory to around 1758 with a detailed examination of when mainstream
production commenced and when the extensions to the works were completed
that allowed full scale enamelling to take place. The wares of the
Worcester manufactory to around 1758 including many images. The varying
roles of the personalities involved are examined.
This book combines connoisseurship, new facts and known history. New
and existing analytical data help support the arguments put forward.
A major contribution by Bill Jay with largely unpublished chemical
data features. Unpublished chemical data conducted at the University
of Norwich on behalf of myself is revealed. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
