This book’s 26 pages features a large true colour photograph of each of the 45 water filters in the Museum’s collection which were produced by 16 different potters covering the period from 1866 to 1930. Many potteries around Australia made water filters during this period that they sold to the public themselves, or for other firms such as ironmongers and filter sellers who sold them through their own stores or agents. Each filter is accompanied by detailed information about the filter and the ironmonger or filter seller for whom it was made, along with advertisements from the period, which makes interesting reading.
