Description

Although Scottish pottery may be traced back over many centuries, it was not until the mid eighteenth century that it became an important element in the national economy. Since the mid twentieth century there has been considerable study of the Scottish pottery industry, revealing the diversification of production and showing that exports and innovation were more significant than previously thought. Scottish pottery is widely recognised as having its own distinctive characters and in this book many examples are illustrated in colour.
