Assessing Modern Theories on Swansea Transferware

Tanner, Arleen and Grahame

Assessing Modern Theories On Swansea TransferwareDiverse theories exist as to whether Samuel Hollins produced Swansea Pottery blue and white transfer ware. Indeed some researchers postulate that the Samuel Hollins’ Pottery produced very significant quantities of blue and white transfer ware. On the contrary our position is that Samuel Hollins did not produce any blue and white transfer printed wares. Further, the suggestion that patterns previously attributed to Swansea should now be reassigned to Samuel Hollins we see as incorrect. The objective of this paper is to demonstrate our reasons for holding this position.
