This type of pottery or porcelain, with a thin decorative metallic film applied to the glaze, reached its peak of popularity during the first half of the nineteenth century. This book describes the range of lustre-decorated wares produced, detailing the techniques used. Originally published in the Shire Album series, this new edition carries many colour photographs and an updated text. About the authorA set of three Leeds silver resist jugs belonging to his parents made the late Michael Gibson aware of lustreware from a very early age and many years later with his wife Dorothy, he gradually built up a collection and began a serious study of the subject.
