Their display of their members' collections of diverse ceramics dating from 1640 to 1970 will include a previously unrecorded and important 56cm high vase, the largest ever made by the Worcester Flight & Barr factory, circa 1820, and signed by one of their foremost artists, Samuel Astles; four rare stoneware pieces by C20th century studio potter Lucie Rie; Parian statues and busts by William Boynton Kirk (c. 1860), and a collection of early Chinese plates from circa 1640.
Experts from the Circle will be on hand at the Fair to answer questions and sign up new members at a special membership rate, and three eminent speakers giving talks at the Fair: Charles Dawson on “250 years at the Worcester Porcelain Factory”, James Sewell on “Orchid Mania on Ceramics!”, and Jonathan Gray on “Wonderful Welsh - Pottery and Porcelain of South Wales”.
