The English Ceramic Circle (ECC for short) is the oldest society dedicated to the study of British ceramics and enamels. Founded in 1927, it aims to advance knowledge by promoting and publishing new research on these subjects.

The Circle`s worldwide membership embraces collectors, curators, archaeologists, potters, auctioneers, dealers, social historians and all those with an interest in the history of ceramics made in the British Isles.

By invitation from the Committee, members may present the results of their research at meetings, normally held in London between October and April of the following year, and those scholarly papers are published annually in the `Transactions of the English Ceramic Circle`, sent free to subscribing members or purchasable by non-members.

Other activities, including visits to collections, seminars and extra publications are undertaken from time to time.

The English Ceramic Circle is Registered Charity Number 1097063. We rely on member`s subscriptions and donations to continue to carry out our activities promoting and publishing research on English ceramics. Whether or not you are a Member would you be prepared to make a donation to ECC? If so you can do so using any credit or debit card or your Paypal account.
