Thanks for visiting my web site on Stoke-on-Trent (The Potteries) - I run this site as a hobby and have no connection with any pottery companies.

I get 100's of email every month after advice on collecting, identifying and valuing pottery - I'm sorry I am not an expert  - I am interested in the history & heritage of Stoke-on-Trent.

So I have put this section together to help you find what you are looking for - good luck & let me know if you have success!
