Mostyn Art Gallery exhibition of Buckley Pottery invitation card to Buckley Library"

Library, The Precinct, Buckley

January 1985

The Mostyn Art Gallery toured a major exhibition of Buckley Pottery to large exhibition spaces around the country. Special cases were made to travel with it. Finally, when it arrived in Buckley at the end of its tour, it was too large for the complete exhibition to be displayed in the library gallery space. However, what was eventually exhibited for the people of Buckley to see proved extremely popular. This document is the invitation card to the private view on 7th January. An accompanying catalogue was produced, copies of which can be found in Buckley Library. This catalogue contains useful notes on the history of the potters and potteries.
