An excellent book for checking out what that strange item you bought with a previously unseen makers mark on. But one thing to watch out for - don't buy this if you are looking for price guidance. The book is very egalitarian in its approach - giving coverage for everything from the little-known potteries to the ubiquitous Doulton, Wedgewood etc. Recommended

4.0 out of 5 stars useful basic guide 9 Mar 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A useful basic ceramics guide to include some American producers. Book arrived in good time given that it came from USA
but would have benefited from more packing other than a tight plastic sleeve. It came with sleeve and the corners where
slightly damaged because of lack of packaging. Otherwise a good clean used copy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Reference Book for Fine China Collectors 6 Sep 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I first looked at this book at the library, then decided it was informative enough to purchase for my own china collector's library. It doesn't have prices which many do...but it has wonderful descriptions of the manufacturers and good color photographs. Used in conjunction with a Warman's book, you will be able to identify most major china manufacturers. I reccommend this highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Make that GREAT photos! A "must-have" aesthetic survey... 9 Mar 2006
By Beyond-Is-Within Also - Published on Amazon.com
The review below appreciated the concise information on makers, but not the SUPERB quality of the photos! I bought this book because I couldn't put it down -- and I'm not a collector. What a way to develop an appreciation of the variety of truly beautiful wares available! Every collector or general aesthete needs this title for the well-chosen and beautifully photographed examples. A sleeper price-wise, and not to be outdated in terms of breadth, now that the 20th century is over...
