5.0 out of 5 stars Another definitive work from Godden 23 Jan 2012
By heretic666 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
An unresearched assumption by Jewitt being dispelled as apocrypha is an early joy in this book.
Another joy was "It is not generally realized that for some years prior to 1814 there were two separate porcelain factories at Coalport....."
A man who has been in the trenches is not a metaphor when it comes to ceramic research and once again Godden has proved the value of muddy boots and a shovel. Sherds and wasters can tell as much if not more than most factory records in the same way the object will always reveal more than the best description of the object.
History of the factories including the Rose, Horton, Anstice periods are covered full but yet another joy is housed towards the end of the text: a chapter entitled "Coalport-Type porcelain". These three pages do more to dispel myths and inaccuracies than I could have hoped for and should be in the foreword of every book on english porcelain. The factory numbering system which helps eradicate half of the mistakes from the records, then the explanation of how much contemporary Minton products were mistaken for Coalport. There are even pages from Minton pattern books to hammer the last nail in to the misattributions, particularly on figures.
Two hundred and thirty pages of plates, one hundred and fifty of text means that the consumption of this book is vital in understanding the wares we lable Coalport/Coalbrookdale.
