Author Biography - Dennis Barker

Dennis Barker, journalist, author and broadcaster, started studying and collecting Parian ware in the 1960s, when he became interested in portrait busts of writers, most of which were in that plain matt white porcelain. His travels enabled him to assemble a varied and socially enlightening collection, from portrait busts of British Empire builders to Dickens spill holders. He has researched Parian in company records, street markets and museums in the Potteries and in the USA.
