Background of Prattware

Prattware is a pottery style made in the late 18th and early 19th centuries by over 20 English and Scottish factories. It takes its name from the Pratt family of Staffordshire potters. But many other British factories in Staffordshire, Yorkshire, Liverpool, Sunderland, and Scotland made this type of pottery. Prattware always consists of pearled creamware decorated with figures or decorations in relief, fired at high temperature, with oxides painted under the glaze.
