Dorset Country Pottery

By Jo Draper and Penny Copland-Griffiths £20.00 including postage and packing.

Dorset Country Pottery traces the history of the industry, people and pots of the Verwood kilns, which were still firing using traditional methods until the end in 1952. Now, much sought after by collectors, their distinctive pieces are admired for their classic lines, rich glazes and rustic beauty, as well as for their place in the history of Dorset and ceramics.

The cover illustration: A Verwood Pottery bread bin, a group of jugs, a costrel and several smaller vessels one of which holds a posy of primroses stand in a pool of light. Buy this book.
