There can be few categories of porcelain more sought-after than Worcester blue and white, the everyday tableware of the moderately well-to-do English family in the second half of the 18th century. This profusely illustrated encyclopaedic reference guide to the patterns used during Worcester's first 40 years is an essential addition to the library of all collectors and dealers who need to identify pieces from this period. The lavish scheme of illustrations includes 465 photographs, 134 tone drawings, and 166 drawings of border designs.
