About this title

Synopsis:

Volume 2 is organized alphabetically by manufacturer, with brief histories, product information, date codes, 950+ dated backstamps, nearly 900 color photographs with individual value ranges of ware predominantly used in restaurants, hotels, clubs, schools, and so forth with a sprinkling of the subjects offered in Volume 1, and more than 350 catalog pages. Coverage includes American as well as foreign china companies. The extensive appendix includes an additional 89 manufacturers and 146 distributors, along with capsule histories and dated logos of 114 hotel and 170 restaurant chains. Particularly useful is the lengthy index which contains a cross-reference to backstamps lacking the manufacturer's name. This book would be of value to any dealer or collector of porcelain or vitrified china dinnerware. Priced and illustrated. AUTHORBIO: Barbara Conroy and her husband have collected restaurant china together for about 20 years. She spent more than six years in intense study for her two volumes on Restaurant China, and her careful research is evident in the two volumes. REVIEW: This 656-page book is arranged alphabetically by manufacturers. It is chock-full of useful information for collectors. Each manufacturer's section includes history, location and dates of production, date code information, examples of backstamps, and other production information as well as color photos of dinnerware and examples of product brochures, advertisements, and catalog pages.
