This newly revised third edition combines recent and classic research with hundreds of all-color photographs to survey Flow Blue chinaware, a highly prized and eagerly sought after ceramic. The values, conveniently located in the captions, have been updated to reflect current market prices. Also, a valuable new index to patterns has been added, giving every collector a quick reference source to the patterns found in all four of the author's guides to Flow Blue. As always, the beautiful color photographs, arranged in chronological and stylistic periods, document the changes in Flow Blue patterns and forms throughout the nineteenth century. Everyday objects as well as rare artifacts are portrayed side-by-side to inform and excite beginning and experienced collectors alike. Common and unusual marks from English, American, and European manufacturers accompany the photographs. The history of Flow Blue, its unusual and distinctive decoration, vessel forms, use, and dating techniques all are covered by an archaeologist whose eye for detail make this a valuable collector's guide. Values are presented for the many forms presented, from the smallest butter pat to the largest platters and footbaths.
