Books

Despite Stafforshire figures being an arcane area of collecting a number of specialists have written books and learned articles on early Staffordshire and figures up to the end of the nineteenth century when pot bank production in the many small factories in the Potteries really ceased. Early Staffordshire is very well covered in the book written by Earle but without doubt the must have books for the early Staffordshire collector are the various very comprehensive and learned books written by the American collector Myrna Bloch Schkolne.

As far as the collector of Victorian figures are concerned these were probably " put on the map " by Thomas Balston in his Christmas 1951 article written for Country Life magazine. Since then there have been a number of good books written and any serious collector should refer to the books written for example by Anthony Oliver, Gordon Pugh and A & N Harding.
