Glamorgan Pottery: Llangollen Plate

Author Norena Shopland – whose book Forbidden Lives: LGBT Histories from Wales is due out on 17 October 2017 (available for pre-order from Seren Books) – alerted me to an article she posted on a certain piece of Glamorgan pottery produced in the early 19th century.

The plate is in the collection of the Amgueddfa Cymru / National Museum Wales. Look closely and you see our two Ladies! click on the photo to read Norena’s article, “The Story of a Plate.”
