Spode Transfer Printed Ware : 1784-1833, Hardback Book

Spode Transfer Printed Ware : 1784-1833 Hardback



Spode Transfer Printed Ware has been extensively enlarged and revised since it was first published in 1983.

With over 100 newly discovered prints, the volume now illustrates every known transfer print issued by the Spode family at their works in Stoke-on-Trent.

The book's 1000 illustrations allow the reader to understand the great variety of shapes produced by Spode, as well as the imprints that they marked their decorated wares with.

Crucially, the volume also outlines the difference between methods of manufacture used in the past and those practiced today, with detailed texts discussing early ceramic printing techniques such as bat printing and pluck and dust printing.
