From dustjacket: "...contains detailed new information which has emerged following excavations on the original factory sites. Illustrated for the first time are some major finds which shed new light on the first few years of porcelain making in Worcester. As well as more than six hundred dictionary entries, Volume I includes a complete historical survey, the most comprehensive illustrated section on marks to date, extracts from contemporary visits to the factories and a select bibliography. A significant section on redecoration classifies the controversial pieces which have been altered at some time to increase their desirability, suggesting when and where this redecoration took place, and highlights pitfalls for collectors. For the first time details of every principal workman connected with the factories who can be identified, every named pattern, and all the principal shapes and forms of decoration are gathered together in one volume. The Dictionary of Worcester Porcelain is the most comprehensive study of these important porcelain factories and is bound to become the standard work of reference on the subject.
