Book Description 2005. Hard Cover with dust jacket. Condition: New. Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. Collecting twentieth-century ceramics is a rapidly expanding area, inspired by the availability and affordability of the pieces and by the huge diversity of colours, styles, patterns, and designs on offer. The future for collectors lies not only in the highly sought-after Art Nouveau work of Moorcroft and Art Deco style of Clarice Cliff, and the ground-breaking designs of Midwinter and Hornsea from the 1950s and 1960s, but also in the inexpensive and familiar pieces of the last 30 years and in the rediscovery of many little-known factories throughout the century. This informative guide was the first to cover a broad range of British and North American factories in detail, and it has now been extended to include the latest collecting areas as well as the most up-to-date prices. Covering over 200 factories, presented in alphabetical order, it explores both the most celebrated and lesser-known designers and manufacturers of the last 100 years. This is a constantly changing field therefore this revised edition includes a new section which deals with additional factories and makers who are attracting interest from collectors today. The book traces the fortunes of individual factories, charting technical and stylistic innovations, and the careers of much-loved designers such as Susie Cooper, Eric Ravilious, Charlotte Rhead, and Jessie Tate. Key dates, areas of production, and principal designers are highlighted in every entry, each of which includes a typical mark to help with identification. Over 550 colour photographs illustrate the designs and patterns of the different makers. Included are contemporary advertisements that offer a fascinating glimpse into the lives of those who originally bought and used the pieces. An, updated price range is given for each item shown. The book concludes with a glossary of terms, a directory of collectors' clubs, recommendations of where to buy and visit, and suggestions for further reading. With such detailed, illustrated coverage, Miller's Twentieth-Century Ceramics provides an invaluable companion for dealers, decorative art students, and collectors alike.
