Abstract

In 1932, Joseph Mellor was, ‘in recognition of achievements of exceptional value in ceramics’, made an honorary member of the American Ceramic Society. Perhaps some American members were present at the annual banquet of the Ceramic Society (UK) in November 1935. Mellor was present, and he no doubt enjoyed the joke told by Ceramic Society President C.R.F. Threfall that ‘To call a man a brick is a universally accepted compliment; to be called a regular brick is even a greater compliment.’
