Pots of Orchids

Bateman commissioned botanical drawings of orchids for his books. Many of which became the source of design for ceramics.

Pam Woolliscroft, former Curator of the Spode Museum Trust in Stoke-on-Trent, takes a look at orchids from the unusual angle of a Spode Bateman Connection. There follows a look at botanical influences on Spode designs, the Bateman connections and specific association with The Orchidaceae of Guatemala & Mexico. Pam documents the discovery of fragments of the Bateman book, its identification and rescue.
