British Blue and White Porcelain Saucers
1745 – 1795
A Guide to Pattern Identification

Collectors and auctioneers will usually recognise the commonly found Cannonball pattern on Worcester porcelain. But could you identify a rare Derby example? How about the West Pans version? This excellent reference work illustrates and describes the characteristics and differences to look for.

Using a saucer for each pattern, this brand new guide to the identification of eighteenth-century teawares illustrates more than 480 different blue and white designs and provides a quick and easy cross-reference to other factories that produced the same pattern. A short summary accompanies each entry and gives a date range and rarity guide for every piece.

The patterns and wares of twenty porcelain factories are discussed. There are also introductory sections on ‘Blue and white decoration’, ‘Prices in the eighteenth century’, and ‘Chinese symbolism on porcelain’.

A comprehensive and essential reference work for all collectors, auctioneers, dealers, museum curators and anyone else with an interest in early British porcelain.
