I am beginning my research into majolica. The Internet is full of plates and other dinnerware of all kinds but not enough figural pieces and most sites show only the major porcelain factories such as the French and English manufacturers for the most part. Majolica Figures is a good starting book for us beginners. My only wish is that the book had covered more information about the Continental pieces. I will still give this book a 5 star rating.
