5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful, unpretentious and useful reference
Although the book is brief, it provides an excellent reference for the collector of art deco ceramics. The author has managed to give essential information on the more desirable producers of ceramics in the 30s and yet has avoided the usual tendency of art deco fans to behave as though only Clarice Cliff and Susie Cooper mattered!

3.0 out of 5 stars Very little
I ordered this off a friends wish list as a Christmas present because I liked the cover. When it arrived it looked more like a pamphlet than a book.

This review is from: Art Deco Ceramics (The Shire Book) (Paperback)
Although the book is brief, it provides an excellent reference for the collector of art deco ceramics. The author has managed to give essential information on the more desirable producers of ceramics in the 30s and yet has avoided the usual tendency of art deco fans to behave as though only Clarice Cliff and Susie Cooper mattered! When compared with other publications on art deco ceramics, I have to say this book is the most useful, and good value for money. While the book does not purport to be a scholarly tome, it is undoubtedly the one most collectors will find indispensable.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last - something new on 1930s British Ceramics! Great!, 19 Nov 2000
This review is from: Art Deco Ceramics (The Shire Book) (Paperback)
Great book! I bought this about a year ago, and it has been so useful. I've been able to take it around with me to Antique fairs and junk shops, and the accurate information about identifying and dating Deco ceramics has been a great help.
Lots of colour pictures, and a better than usual introduction, but the best thing is the book gives space to some lesser known factories such as Langley, Enoch Wedgwood, Shorter, Johnson Brothers and Myott. Also the usual stars such as Clarice Cliff, Susie Cooper and Charlotte Rhead are here. Also my favourite, Keith Murray.
I only wish it was longer!

Great little book, very useful, like all Shire books, usually can only get them at museums ans stately homes, not easily here in Northern Ireland.....Prompt delivery, no problems, will certainly order again.
