Overview

Here at last is a thorough guide of the most collected dinnerware. In one volume this book provides an excellent survey of the best companies and their most popular lines. The important California companies, including the Wallace China Company, Catalina Pottery, B.J. Brock & Co., and Gladding, McBean & Co. along with other companies nationwide including the Crooksville Art Pottery Co., Frankoma, and the Hall China Company, are among the many potteries represented. The contributions of famous designers such as Ben Seibel, Russel Wright, Eva Zeisel, and Sascha Brastoff are explored. Extensive research has uncovered new information on many of the companies and designers. Over 300 clear photos, extracts from catalogs and advertisements, historical photos, and a well-documented text will help to identify dinnerware, to trace changing technological and design trends, and to showcase an industry in its heyday. As the journey to uncover and identify all the American produced dinnerware from the twentieth century continues, this book serves as an important milestone and an important reference.
