18th CENTURY ENGLISH TRANSFER-PRINTED PORCELAIN AND ENAMELS – The Joseph M. Handley Collection foreword by Simon Spero, Mulberry Press, CA, 1991.
Approximately 300 black-and-white photographs with identifying captions highlight this scholarly treatise on Worcester transfer printed pottery and porcelain. ”The literature on Worcester porcelain has a breadth and variety entirely befitting for the most widely collected of all the English porcelain factories, and the only one with an unbroken history of production from the mid-eighteenth century until the present day. The first twenty-five years of its output alone, have generated the publication in at least ten book since the early 1950s. Yet in that time, no book has specifically addressed the subject of over-glaze transfer-printing, a technique both pioneered, and brought to perfection at the Worcester factory. Joseph Handley’s catalogue, with its hundred and twenty so pieces of Worcester, is there fore a valuable and timely addition to the collector’s bookshelf.”
This comprehensive text covers by chapter: Porcelain: Commemoratives (Worcester, Longton Hall, and Bow); Human Subjects; Bird and Animal Subjects; Chinoiserie; Ruins; Landscapes; Amorials and Non-Worcester. Pottery: Saltgaze; Creamware; and Liverpool Tiles. Enamels: Battersea; Birmingham, and Liverpool.
8.8” x 11.2” hardback with dust cover in very good condition. 309 pages.
