About the Author

J. P. Cushion, FRSA, was a much sought-after authority on decorative and collectable pottery and porcelain. He spent many years on the staff of the Victoria and Albert Museum, mostly in the Department of Ceramics where he was the Senior Research Assistant. For twenty years he tutored courses on the history of pottery and porcelain at Morley College for the University of London Extra-Mural Department. He was the president of the Morley College Ceramic Circle and a founder lecturer for the National Association of Decorative and Fine Art Societies.

William Bowyer Honey (1889-1956) was Keeper of the Department of Ceramics at the Victoria and Albert Museum from 1938 to 1950. He wrote many books and monographs about ceramic art, as well as publishing verse anthologies. He was appointed CBE in 1951.

Handbook of Pottery and Porcelain Marks 28 Sept. 2012
By Inez J. Austin - Published on
Verified Purchase
I bought the book because I am doing research on the China and Porcelain. The book was interesting and informative. It was a good choice because it also contains information of registration dates and manufacturer which is hard to find.

Not the best choise 12 Oct. 2013
By Elena Fedoriv - Published on
Good idea but not the best handbook.
Not enough information about manufactures of Europe etc, almost no info about changes of marks according to years.
Most of marks are not looking close to original.
A huge part for English pottery and porcelain - lucky English porcelain's collector :)
