About this title

From Library Journal:

The Shenandoah valley, a culturally distinct mountainous area encompassing parts of Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, and Virginia, has a tradition of utilitarian folk pottery dating back to 1750. Alvin H. Rice and John Baer Stoudt's The Shenandoah Pottery (1929) was written in response to early collector interest. Now Comstock, a collector and museum consultant residing in the valley, presents a comprehensive study including a general history of the pottery trade, a well-illustrated description of the pieces produced in the valley, and biographical sketches of individual potters. This excellent regional pottery history is highly recommended for all antiques and decorative arts collections.
