4.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to the world of collecting! 12 July 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good introduction to the world of collecting! I would recommend this to anyone who would like to start putting together a collection. Early cups are a great subject for a collection - as they are plentiful enough to be affordable, yet are true antiques.

5.0 out of 5 stars British Tea & Coffee Cups 12 Feb 2009
By OzBrian
This book makes me drool - there are soooo many beautiful cups. People ask about our collection "you do use them don't you" and are astonished when the answeris "No". The examples in this book would NEVER EVER even be considered for use. Regretfully, we will be lucky to even see one of these, let alone own one. But we are still glad we got the book.
