THE "BIBLE" ON MARKINGS FOR POTTERY & PORCELAIN,
This review is from: Encyclopedia Of British Pottery And Porcelain Marks (Hardcover)
No matter what item of pottery or porcelain you are trying to research, this should be the first thing you reach for. Long considered to be the "bible" for dealers and collectors. My own copy has long since lost its shiny new look and is now a battered, well used and reliable source of information. Along with British Studio Potters' Marks by Yates, Owen & Fournier, you really should not need anything else to find out all you need on backstamps and markings. Obviously other reference books come into their own on antiques and should also be purchased but for a first point of reference, these two books should be your first purchases and both will save you making very costly mistakes no matter how experienced you are.
