Ten years ago authors Lisa McAllister and John Michel brought collectors the definitive guide to collecting American yellow ware. Collector Books is proud to bring back that popular title with the same wonderfully detailed color photographs, now up to date with current information and values that have undergone dramatic changes since the first printing of the book in 1992. The book contains extensive information on the manufacturing process of redware, stoneware, and yellow ware, and takes you step by step, starting with the clay then moving on to forming the piece, decorating, firing, and finally, attribution. Manufacturers are categorized into East, South, New England, Ohio, and West, and manufacturers' marks are listed and described. Around 300 color photographs showcase storage jars, mustard pots, pitchers, bowls, teapots, cups & mugs, canister sets, plates, bottles, soap dishes, figurals, custard cups, and much more. Collectors have been waiting for the revival of this important guide - you're sure to 'wear' out Collecting Yellow Ware. 2003 values.
