|Comments:||Jackfield production is historically associated with the town of Jackfield in Shropshire, however it was also commonly produced in Staffordshire by potters like Thomas Whieldon (thus the use of "Jackfield-type" wares). It’s peak period of use was from about 1740-1760. Jackfield type ware made by Thomas Wheildon is characterized by a redder body and slightly more brilliant black glaze.|
