Scottish Pottery

Scottish PotteryScottish Pottery (Shire Album) Although Scottish pottery may be traced back over many centuries, it was not until the mid eighteenth century that it became an important element in the national economy. Since the mid twentieth century there has been considerable study of the Scottish pottery industry, revealing the diversification of production and showing that exports and innovation were more significant than previously thought. Scottish pottery is widely recognised as having its own distinctive characters and in this book many examples are illustrated in colour.

Mauchline WareThe Collector's Guide to Mauchline Ware Scottish Pottery. Little has previously been published about this highly collectable souvenir ware which was manufactured in Scotland between 1840 and 1939. Mauchline ware is now widely collected around the world and prices are on the increase. This much needed book on the subject documents the history and manufacture of the ware and catalogues the vast array of items which were produced in various shapes, sizes and finishes. Mauchline ware appeals to a wide span of collectors as the articles are linked to activities such as sewing, smoking, reading and writing. The important connection between Robert Burns, Scotland's national poet, and the town of Mauchline is also examined. The book contains a chapter on care and maintenance, a comprehensive list of dealers and a price guide.
