The Della Robbia Pottery in Birkenhead was founded in 1894 by Harold Rathbone. A junior member of a wealthy and influential family, Harold was free to pursue an artistic career and his pottery was inspired by his studies of Renaissance art in Italy and the ideals of the Arts and Crafts Movement. In six essays, this slim volume explores the pottery, its inspiration and the distinctive output of ceramics created there before its closure in 1906.
