    Hi everyone, this’ll most likely be a thread only of considerable interest to pottery nuts and fanatics but hell, if I found it interesting I’m sure someone else will.

    It’s the only one of these I can actually find, then again I don’t suppose it was produced in any number being a specific admin text.

    It is what it states, a record of the proceedings during meetings of the British Pottery Manufacturers Federation or the BPMF. I haven’t looked at the book too much but if there is anything you think might be in there that’ll be interesting by all means ask me. I didn’t like the sound of a 47 hour week for workers which I read haha.

    Lots of the meetings were held in Stoke-on-Trent where I live. Amazing the people who attended or at least the represetatives anyway. Wedgewood, Beswick, Royal Doulton, New Hall, Poole, Aynsley, Crown Staffs, Mintons and a multitude of other factories attended.

    Found this at a very small local auction for £10 overall. How could I resist it for its rarity and local importance.

    Now isn't that interesting? One of those old book exceptions where condition doesn't matter.

    I'd have pounced on it too; the tatty cover wouldn't put anyone off in this case. There can't be too many copies floating around.

    Haha definitely. Contents over condition this time :punch: .

    Yeh, I’ll hit them up with an email SIS l, they seem like they’d love to catalogue something like this. Hope they can say a bit on it. Always love to hear about anything I have. Knowledge is power xD
