Caughley Blue & White Patterns
by the Caughley Society

For the first time ever, a definitive book of Caughley blue and white patterns and accompanying borders has been published by The Caughley Society and is available now. 151 patterns and their borders are fully described and illustrated with nearly 500 newly commissioned digital photographs of pieces in both private and museum collections, many of which have never been published before. Each pattern occupies at least one page and is illustrated by one or more photographs. A detailed description accompanies each, which includes a date range during which the pattern is believed to have been used, the pattern’s rarity, the marks that accompany the pattern, the shapes it was used on, which borders accompany it, whether it is printed or painted, and details of whether the pattern was also used by the Worcester factory. A commentary elaborates this information and draws attention to particular features.

With 256 pages, this hardback book with dust jacket has been produced to the highest professional standards and is printed in full colour throughout. It has been written by a team of leading experts from the Society and, with a foreword by Geoffrey Godden, contains additional chapters on the patterns in their historical context, borders, documentary pieces, and marks. It will be a comprehensive and invaluable source of information for auctioneers, ceramic historians, collectors, curators, dealers, and others interested in eighteenth-century porcelain.


“This new Society-backed publication, with its wide range of helpful illustrations, will surely testify to the importance of this very rural Shropshire factory.” – Geoffrey Godden

“Neat classifications of patterns by names and numbers are incredibly useful. This book will not only help auctioneers, dealers and museums catalogue their pieces, it will become the bible for existing collectors and encourage new ones.” – John Sandon

This long-awaited book has been published in a limited edition of 500 copies. The cover price is £45.00, and the cost of shipping varies according to country. To order book.

We share information about this book with thanks to the Caughley Society.
