Rosemary Halliday & Richard Halliday

Available Now


This book brings to the attention of the collecting public nearly 300 transferware items from 1780-1840, including examples of dinner ware, toilet and medical ware, and pieces for food preparation and storage. The exceptional pieces cataloged are uncommon in pattern, shape, use, or other factors; interesting in terms of history of its use; and/or thought provoking because its use is a mystery. Each of these very unusual, rare, and extraordinary items are presented here on its own page with multiple images showing every aspect of the piece, including source prints if available. In addition, each piece is accompanied by a full description, including historical context of these wares and how people lived in Georgian and early Victorian times, as well as details on the maker, size, date of manufacture, and marks. With more than 1200 images, this book of pottery objects for every conceivable use will appeal to collectors, historians, and dealers.
