Description

'The Potteries' is the name given to the industrial area in the English Midlands that was home to hundreds of pottery-making companies, and until recently supplied most of the country's crockery and decorative ceramics. Although generations of collectors have studied the products of these companies, the story of the industry behind them has rarely been told. Yet no British industry was ever so concentrated, so polluting, and then so transformed. No industrial skyline was ever more memorable than the forest of bottle ovens that used to dominate the skyline of Stoke-on-Trent. An entirely revised and re-illustrated edition of a classic "Shire" title, this is the perfect introduction to the industrial history of The Potteries, its major firms and the men and women who produced pottery for Britain and the world.
