Beswick Pottery, Paperback / softback Book

Beswick Pottery Paperback / softback

Part of the Shire Library series

Description

Founded in 1894 by James Wright Beswick, Beswick Pottery remained in the family for three generations before becoming part of Royal Doulton in 1969, and is now independently owned.

As owners and collectors of its products will testify, Beswick aimed, and still aims today, to produce well-made ceramics at affordable prices: wares which could be used daily in the home as well as decorative ornaments for animal lovers of all ages to cherish.

In this volume Val Baynton explores the range of products, revealing that far more than horses - for which Beswick was so justifiably famous - were made.

The wares are placed in context with the company's history, and information about important sculptors and designers is also included.
