H&R Daniel Earthenwares, by John and Jeannette Simpson, with Brian Smith and Bryan Beardmore
This is the first book to attempt a comprehensive survey of the various shapes and patterns produced in earthenware by H&R Daniel and to differentiate them from other contemporary manufacturers such as Thomas Dimmock & Co, to whom they are frequently attributed.
Brian Smith and Bryan Beardmore have between them over fifty years experience in identifying and collecting Daniel, and are co-authors of the most recent work on Daniel porcelain tablewares. John and Jeannette Simpson had considerable experience as technical authors before being drawn into the ceramics world, and since 2010 have been editors of the Journal of the Daniel Ceramic Circle.

It is a treasure house of information and an indispensable book of reference. Get more information.
