Pickle Dishes & Milseys
In this excellent 204-page publication, Richard Halliday documents the outstanding and one-of-a-kind collection of the late Robin Greeves and provides an interesting social and historical perspective for these two often misunderstood forms of transfer-printed Staffordshire pottery. Richard's study includes a discussion of the role of "pickles" on 18th and 19th century English tables, a review of how pickle dishes and milseys were used, and a comprehensive and well-organized catalog of patterns and shapes. This book is the result of a research grant from the Transferware Collectors Club. Following the completion of Mr. Halliday's exhaustive work to catalog and research the collection, it was sold in lots at auction. The project includes literally hundreds of quality images of these two unusual forms which are skillfully organized by shapes and patterns. This is a book you will surely want to add to your library.
