Arthur Puffett has collected and dealt in ceramics for 50 years and after retiring he now researches and writes about the subjects he loves, but for which there is little or no information readily available.
He has written books on Carlton Ware and Wedgwood, specifically Carlton China and Wedgwood Named Patterns, 1800-1940. Arthur has kindly donated all profits from the Carlton China book to Carlton Ware World.
