The Charm of English Pink: the Pott’ries
76 pages, 9 by 12 inches, Perfect binding $25.00
In this text, we examine the Staffordshire Pott’ries, the hamlets, villages and towns of Stafford County where this enormous industry was spawned. Every English resident, as well as citizens from countries around the globe, recognizes the tiny area in the north of England known as Staffordshire.
This text is a detailed look at this section of north Stafford County, its towns, its people, its growth and the amazing industry that forged its very core and made it known the world over. Beyond the obvious history of the region, the author treats us to glimpses into a few of the original potworks, the Harecastle tunnels on the Trent-and-Mersey Canal − the waterway that transformed the English industry, the last firing of a bottle-shaped oven, original potworks, Staffordshire area museums, designer Clarice Cliff and even a look at Arnold Bennett’s District.
The next book in the Charm series is a study, including photographs, of the six major communities that today form the city of Stoke-on-Trent, England, the world’s potting capital.
