Although generations of collectors have studied the products of these companies, the story of the industry behind is rarely told. Yet no British industry was ever so concentrated, so polluting, and then so transformed. No industrial skyline was ever more memorable than the forest of bottle ovens that used to dominate the skyline of Stoke-on-Trent. An entirely revised and re-illustrated edition of a classic Shire title, this is the perfect introduction to the industrial history of the potteries, its major firms and the men and women who produced pottery for Britain and the world.
