In the 1780s imports of China declined and British potters copied the hand-painted patterns using the technique of transfer printing from copper plates. Spode has never been surpassed.



Praise For Blue and White Transfer-Printed Pottery

"Like other Shire books in my collection, this is a wonderful little volume packed with a great many pictures and tons of information.  I’ve used these books time and again in my research—sometimes for facts, sometimes for inspiration.  This one offers plenty of both, starting with a Glossary and History and going on to detailed photos of the manufacturing process, and proceeding to discussions of the patterns and colors (including a chart of the tones of blue)." -Loretta Chase, Two Nerdy History Girls (March 2010)
