About this title

Synopsis:

This dictionary brings together as many facts as possible about blue and white printed pottery at the height of its popularity and production. The authors have produced a comprehensive guide, covering every possible aspect of the subject, with Appendices which include makers' initial marks and a list of source books used by makers. The discovery that prints could be transferred to porcelain and pottery helped transform the ceramics industry. Inevitably, the market demand at the end of the nineteenth century for brightly coloured wares put an end to this extraordinary potting endeavour but the interest of collectors has never declined. This book was awarded the Library Association's 1982 McColvin Medal for an outstanding reference book. It is the first of a two volume set, having been supplemented in 1989 by a separate and entirely new companion volume containing additional entries and further information. This is a first-class reference book - Antique Collectors
