This book supersedes and updates virtually every existing book on British porcelain, showing for the first time the whole range of manufacturers: the small pot banks as well as the large and well-known firms; the very short-lived as well as those that span the centuries; and it includes today's porcelain firms and the large number of studio potters who produce porcelain wares. They are listed in alphabetical order, with numerous cross-references to help in the tracing of individual makers. For each, the working period is given, their relationship with preceding and succeeding firms, and a outline of their history, articles produced, and details of any marks used. The book is profusely illustrated with over 470 photographs in colour and monochrome, and numerous makers' marks.
