Woodbridge, Suffolk: Antique Collectors' Club, 1978. Hardbound. VG (DJ may have slight aging or tanning in interior; book is otherwise clean.). Red boards with gilt letters on spine & front cover; magenta & color-illustrated dust jacket. 245 pp., 19 color and 190 bw plates. "The first book to be devoted entirely to porcelain made by the Worcester Porcelain Company between the years 1783-1840, during which period two families, the Flights and the Barrs, were partners in producing some of the finest English porcelain ever made. It was bought by the British aristocracy, and graced royal tables in England and Russia. Today it is avidly collected all over the world and one has only to look at the fine moulding, the superb painting and the rich deep colours to appreciate why this period of English ceramic making is universally respected. But this pre-eminence was not arrived at easily." And the story moves on from there. Nice! (Inventory #: 105249)
