MEDIA REVIEWS
"The art of Worcester Porcelain, 1751-1788 provides a beautiful presentation of the finest collection of such ware in the British Museum. Readers will find the volume effectively deals with the Worcester factory's production methods and decoration, plus the overall history of the British Museum collection."--Inside Antiques
"This beautifully photographed book showcases 101 of the most important and attractive pieces of eighteenth-century Worcester porcelain in the collection of the British Museum. They date from the period 1751-83, from the factory's founding by Dr. John Wall, to a few years after his death in 1776. Many of the pieces are fully illustrated in color here for the first time. A concise overview of the Worcester factory and its production methods in the eighteenth century is followed by superb illustrations and informative texts, including new research about each of the featured pieces. An enlightening introduction to the subject for the non-specialist and an essential reference for the collector."--Northeast Antiques
