Prattware English Pottery

ENGLISH AND SCOTTISH Circa 1780 - 1840

The term Prattware is derived from the name of the potter inventor of the technique Felix Pratt who was based in Staffordshire.

The light earthenware body is decorated in a palette of oxide colours comprising, cobalt blue, yellow-ochre, manganese, brown and a rather sludgy green. These colours are applied underneath a pearlware glaze. Items decorated in this colour palette are termed generically as Prattware. Many factories produced Prattware pottery in locations such as Staffordshire, Yorkshire, South Wales and the North East of England.

John and Griselda Lewis wrote the most famous reference book on the subject and is the most comprehensive work on the subject produced to date and is titled: Pratt Ware (English and Scottish relief decorated and underglaze coloured earthenware 1780-1840).
