Catalogue of a collection of pottery and porcelain illustrating popular British history

Catalogue of a collection of pottery and porcelain illustrating popular British history

Ratings: (0)|Views: 147|Likes:
This collection has been formed with a view to develop the idea that the history of the country may to a large extent be traced on its homely pottery, and it is not to be regarded as an exhibition of ceramic art. On the mantelpieces of many cottage homes may be found representations which the inmates admire and revere, as their ancestors have done before them. They form, in fact, a kind of unconscious survival of the Lare and Penates of the Ancients. The classification, whilst confessedly arbitrary, has been made not so much in reference to the maker, the time and place of manufacture, but rather with regard to the greater human int&rest which each object presents.
