Jackfield (black-glazed earthenwares)

Jackfield for sale:

‘Jackfield’ ware refers to black-glazed earthenwares, usually with red or dark clay bodies. They are named after the location in Shropshire where such wares are known to have been made during the C18th. However black-glazed wares were made widely in Britain, especially in Staffordshire where their production pre-dates the wares from Jackfield, and were known by the potters who made them (such as Whieldon, Greatbatch, Wedgwood etc.) as ‘Shining Black’.

Later black glazed Jackfield type wares were known by other names such as ‘Jet ware’ and were produced as far afield as Scotland well into the early C20th. Early wares from the C18th often had cold enamelled or gold size decoration. Later wares also had enamelled and printed decoration.
