Made in four sections, each piece is impressed: ‘T. Field & Sons Potter Sydney,’ and was made for and exhibited at the 1879 ‘Sydney International Exhibition’ for which they were awarded a ‘First Degree of Merit.’

The collection is devoted to potters and potteries established between 1788 and 1920, and includes pieces from those who continued after 1920 until they closed.

We are also interested in adding further early Australian pottery pieces to the collection by gift, bequest or purchase.

If you have a piece or pieces you may wish to donate, bequeath or sell please get in touch and send photographs.
