The post medieval pottery covers a wide range of forms and decoration. Cups, bowls ,plates, dishes, serving dishes, drinking vessels, teapots, jugs and many more were produced in Britain as well as some imports.
The potters producing these wares were numerous and well known, those such as Wedgewood, Copeland, Worcester Porcelain, Spode, Masons Ironstone China, Crown Derby, Minton and many more and ranging in date from the 15th century onwards. Wares consisted of color painted wares also blue and white painted as well as transfer printed pottery items.
I will choose the most popular pottery manufacturers and my favorites for the beginner as stated in my previous posts about pottery, although previous ones were linked with archaeology. This post is more to do with antiques so may also encourage antique collecting as there are still some bargains out there if you know what to look for.
