Lowestoft porcelain, in common with the products of all other eighteenth century English factories, has been collected since it was first produced. The porcelain of Lowestoft is nowadays particularly sought after by an avid band of collectors.
This is a book on Lowestoft porcelain with a difference. Christopher Brooks comes to the subject not from the collector’s viewpoint, but from that of a local historian.
His aim has been to present the subject supported by the social history of the period, putting it into context with the other activities in the town during the second half of the eighteenth century. It is hoped that this will prove to be a ‘popular history’ and appeal to the general public and dedicated collectors of Lowestoft alike.
