The history and products of Wileman & Co. and Shelley Potteries are well known and referenced, but it is more difficult to find corresponding information about the early proprietors of the Foley Potteries and about J.F.Wileman's earthenware works. This comb bound book, based on a talk by the authors at the Shelley Group Annual Weekend in 2008, endeavours to fill that gap. The evolving partnerships over the period 1822 to 1892 are discussed and illustrated with many of the known backstamps of this period.
