    • Burnishing is a form of pottery treatment in which the surface of the pot is polished, using a hard smooth surface such as a wooden or bone spatula, smooth stones, plastic, or even glass bulbs, while it still is in a leathery ‘green’ state, i.e., before firing. The card is a reproduction and send by a friend who recently visited the Coalpost Potteries near Iron Bridge,in the village all the people wear Victorian dress and there are shop etc where visitors can experience, if only briefly the atmosphere, a great place to visits – we didn’t see any maids when we went though :-/ I think that the number of women or young girls was probably because they were a source of cheap labour
