Collecting Noritake A to Z: Art Deco and Moreby David Spain, David Spain
This book adds more than 750 color photos to the record of materials on Noritake collectibles presented in Spain's 1997 book on this subjectÑa work with more than 1,200 color photos. This book, like the previous one, is comprehensive. It covers non-dinnerware porcelains made by the Noritake Company between about 1908 and the 1970s. The emphasis, however, is on the 1920s and works with Art Deco characteristics. The backstamp materials have been expanded, updated, and made very user-friendly. In addition, there is a substantial and thought-provoking essay on the historical and cultural roots of Art Deco, in general, along with a thorough discussion of the distinguishing features of Art Deco Noritake fancy line porcelains of the 1920s.
