3.0 out of 5 stars Useful for Shelley collectors
The text briefly covers the history of the pottery, and concentrates quite heavily on Shelley's advertising strategies. The writer covers most aspects of the wares produced, but has little on Harmony ware, the more traditional floral decorations, Intarsia ware and Mabel Lucy Attwell's nursery ware are covered in some detail. The text is marred by non-existent proof...

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful for Shelley collectors, 5 Mar 2010
This review is from: Collecting Shelley Pottery (Paperback)
The text briefly covers the history of the pottery, and concentrates quite heavily on Shelley's advertising strategies. The writer covers most aspects of the wares produced, but has little on Harmony ware, the more traditional floral decorations, Intarsia ware and Mabel Lucy Attwell's nursery ware are covered in some detail. The text is marred by non-existent proof reading: grammatical errors, syntax, lack of punctuation, and missing words pepper the text, which detracts from the useful information that it contains. A certain mysogynism is displayed by the writer when he writes that there really were titles called Good Housekeeping and Woman and Home in the 1920s/1930s - they're still around Mr Prescott-Walker! There are a number of excellent colour illustrations which form a useful reference.
