An excellent guide to these much sought after ceramics,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Shorter Connection: A.J.Wilkinson, Clarice Cliff, Crown Devon - A Family Pottery, 1874-1974 (Paperback)
This is a well researched and well written guide to the output of Shorter & Son Ltd of Stoke-on-Trent over the 100 years of their life. The factory's highly collectable art deco pottery is described in considerable detail, as is the history of the firm. The connection with Clarice Cliff is explored in depth and after reading the book who can be in any doubt that Clarice designed many of the firm's most popular lines, including the famous fish ware. The sections on the use of back stamps and types of glaze to date the ceramics are most useful.
