New Hall Porcelains

By (author) Geoffrey A. Godden

  • Written by an expert on the subject
Full Description
In this fascinating volume, china-ware expert Geoffrey Godden shows how collectable and decorative New Hall Porcelain is. The factory produced over three thousand patterns which served to enhance a long series of attractive yet very functional forms. They were welcomed for their excellence over a period of over fifty years, from 1782 to 1835. The success of these pleasing Staffordshire porcelains in the marketplace helped to turn the Staffordshire Potteries, then famed only for its earthenwares, into a porcelain-producing center of world importance. The New Hall firm in England were market-leaders in their own time, their shapes and styles widely copied by their several imitators.
New Hall Porcelains presents historical facts in a novel, helpful manner, supporting with a broad selection of clear illustrations. Geoffrey Godden is able to illustrate how diverse and attractive these Staffordshire ‘Real China’ porcelains can be, placing New Hall in its rightful position in the study of British porcelains and their history.
