Spode Greek

Spode Greek
Moore, Nicholas

Spode Greek is a one hundred and seventy page soft-back publication by Nicholas Moore. It will serve as an invaluable reference work for Greek pattern collectors, historians and transferware enthusiasts alike. The author has been collecting Spode transfer printed pottery for over thirty years and during that period, developed a major interest in Spode’s Greek patterns. The past eight years has seen Nicholas research every aspect, including historical contexts, of this extremely striking pattern. The book is fully illustrated with over two hundred and fifty full-colour illustrations along with nearly fifty black and white source print images. Not only does the book cover the whole pottery side of the Greek pattern, it also majors on the diverse and rich history behind these patterns which goes back nearly 2500 years. The book is laid out in a very careful way that shows each pattern alongside the relevant source material and/or any corresponding elements from the Spode manufacturing process. There is also a section that depicts some of the diverse shapes that Spode produced which were decorated with the Greek pattern. In addition to illustrations of the pottery, the work also affords the reader the rare opportunity to see the original copper plates from the Spode Museum Trust. This one hundred and seventy page book will inform and thrill in equal quantities and will reaffirm the delight that is collecting blue and white transferware.
