A-Z of Staffordshire Dogs
A-Z of Staffordshire
Staffordshire dogs usually took pride of place on mantelpieces in 19th century homes where they could be admired. In this lavishly illustrated work, with colour throughout, the author's aim has been to record as many different breeds as possible, thereby dispelling the myth that Staffordshire dogs were based solely on the spaniel. The book lists over 200 dog models and includes thirty-four breeds which have been grouped conveniently in alphabetical order. The discerning collector is provided with an insight into the quality of modelling and painting as the colour photographs have been restricted to the finest pieces to be found, even if that means including on occasions a good single example rather than an inferior pair. While some characteristics of certain dog breeds have changed over the past hundred years, thanks to the potter's skill most are still instantly recognisable.

Heroes and Villains: Stories from Staffordshire Figures
Heroes and Villains: Stories from Staffordshire
Why would anyone want a murderer on their mantelshelf? Victorian manufacturers of Staffordshire pottery figures produced portraits of a huge range of celebrities. Some, like Admiral Nelson or Grace Darling, were obvious role models. Others were unsavoury characters whose appeal is less obvious.Some of the Staffordshire figures are still recognisable today. Others had only a brief moment of celebrity and are now almost forgotten. The twelve stories in this little book reflect the interests of ordinary Victorians and the people they admired or despised.
