Synopsis: John Davenport, the founder of the firm, was born in 1765. After working in Liverpool in partnership with Thomas Wolfe, he moved to Longport in the Staffordshire potteries. Wares known as Davenport have been produced at four separate Longport works from about 1793. This book begins with a history of the family and the factory, and successive chapters concentrate on the many different types of ware - creamware, basalt, pearlware, caneware etc. - that were produced. Little is known of the pre-1830 porcelains except that they were of very high quality. Those made after 1830 were similar in style to Coalport. Other chapters are devoted to Davenport glass, a list of variegated designs and marks.
