Beautiful examples of decorative plates have been made by almost every porcelain company in the world in a variety of subjects in all price ranges.

Historical background on early ceramic art, the development of tableware, and plates for display are included, and the differences between chargers, service plates, game and fish sets, oyster plates, and commemorative plates are discussed. Organized by country or geographic area, the book covers both American and foreign items. Deldare art pottery, Pickard china, French, German, and Oriental plates, marks, and the popular hobby of American china painting - it's all in Decorative Plates. 2008 values.
