The English Ceramic Circle (or ECC for short) is the oldest society dedicated to the study of British ceramics and enamels.
Members interested in ceramics at all levels of knowledge are always made welcome. Founded in 1927, we aim to advance
knowledge by presenting new research on these subjects at our meetings and by publishing this research. 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.
Enthusiasts and experts in British pottery, porcelain and enamels.
