    Collecting Shelley Pottery 2014

    • 142 pages Colour
    • Publisher: Francis Joseph Publications

    The aim of this book is to offer readers a good overall historical account of the Shelley pottery and it's significance. What I have tried to do is cover the historical significance of the Shelley Pottery, comparing the wares with their contemporaries as well as highlighting some of the significant social and economic factors that have had a role. Shelley wares were not only a breath of fresh air in terms of design but saw the introduction of influential new marketing and promotional skills within the business. I have included a chapter in which I have discussed most of the illustrations in the 64 pages of colour (over 150 pictures in all) and hope you find that useful. There are also some rare unpublished B & W illustrations. As the production of Shelley was so diverse it would require many more pages than the format of this book allows, to include illustrations of everything the pottery made. There are many other books that discuss specific areas of Shelley production, such as Wileman, Crested wares, Chintz, Nursery Wares, etc. My aim was to produce something for the new collector of Shelley and as such I hope that the reader can develop a good understanding of the pottery, its place in ceramic history as well as some of the sorts of ware you might come across.

    Royal Winton Collectors Handbook

    from 1925: Cottage Ware, Art Deco, Lustre Ware, Pastels, Etc.

    • 144 pages Colour
    • Publisher: Francis Joseph Publications
    • Language: English

    Miller is well known in collector's circles for the Miller Guides. This small book is an excellent start for new Winton collectors, and a good resource for seasoned collectors.

    While this book does quite a good job of listing a number of the sytles and patterns to be found within the Royal Winton range, its use as a price guide is VERY limited due to the fact that it is not a comprehensive guide.

    All in all, I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in collecting Winton.
