Jackfield is largely a generic name for a class of earthenware decorated with a glossy black glaze.

Traditionally this type of ware was made at Jackfield, near Coalport in Shropshire, England. But excavations and other evidence suggest that such pieces were also made in Staffordshire and at other ceramic centres in the 18th century.
