The Porcelains of Thomas Wolfe at Stoke Upon TrentThe Porcelains of Thomas Wolfe at Stoke upon Trent (Formerly Factory Z) edited by Field McIntyre

After many years of study of “Factory Z” by collectors a near-consensus has formed that the porcelains are the work of Thomas Wolfe. This publication provides a unique attribution guide to Thomas Wolfe. The format is a soft-back A4 book with 128 pages including more than 430 colour illustrations, giving a comprehensive look at the wares and a strong starting point for attribution of further patterns in the future. Purchase via PayPal, on the London Ceramic Circle, Morley College website.
