Shawnee Pottery: The Full Encyclopediaby Pamela Duvall Curran
The dinnerware, cookie jars, vases, salt & pepper shakers, and figural characters of Shawnee Pottery of Zanesville, Ohio were popular items while they were being produced between 1936 and 1963. Shawnee's high quality items were well-priced for the mass-produced pottery market and their innovative marketing and production techniques and designs were often copied by others, making them a real leader in the field. This practical kitchenware and the whimsical, adorable figural characters have now become very popular with collectors. Never before have so many of the people who played key roles in the history of Shawnee Pottery contributed accurate and previously unpublished information for a book. Here is a thorough history which challenges much of the misinformation circulating about the pottery. With nearly 1300 full-color photos of the pottery and dinnerware, its marks, labels, catalogs, and even new items and reproductions, along with black and white historical photos of the personnel, plant, and manufacturing process, this book is the most comprehensive study you can have in your library of Shawnee references.

Absolute must for Shawnee and cookie jar collectors. One of the finest collector guides produced. The historical section is excellent and goes beyond the scope of most collector guides providing thoroughly researched and detailed history of the company with accompanying archival photographs. Worth every penny paid.
