Our sister website about the pottery made by Thomas Forester at Phoenix Works between 1877 and the 1950s is now live.

There are few images on there at the moment plus an RSS feed to what’s on offer on Ebay.

I have a further 250 images to resize and install which I will do over time.

Link is www.thomasforester.com

Comments and personal stories about collecting Forester’s pottery are most welcome and will be posted.

I will try to be as accurate as I can with the dates the items were produced. It’s not easy with only backstamps and advertisements to work from.

I must acknowledge the help my friend Peter Beckett, who wrote the book about Forester, has given me.

I hope it all makes for an interesting and informative story.

Please let me know about any mistakes I might have made.
