5.0 out of 5 stars Useful Supplement to Goddens Encyclopaedia (Another Amazon Failure), 9 Jun. 2012
This review is from: British Studio Potters' Marks (Ceramics) (Hardcover)
Yet again Amazon fails to differentiate between two separate editions, the second of which is a quarter larger than the first.
The potters represented here mostly had little significance since the last update of Goddens so would not have required an entry even if it was part of Goddens brief which was mainly concentrated on antiques.
Studio pottery marks tend to make as much sense to the uninitiated as heiroglyphs so any guide through this minefield is appreciated. Not just a list of the potters but dates and even addresses where they changed their locations make this a book beyond the definition of thorough. There are some nineteenth century studio potters marks here which date from the time when the term was coined, so not just the twentieth century is covered
Now almost impossible to find at an affordable price the decision to buy this book must be made on the depth of your passion for studio pottery and need for the identification.
That was my review of the first edition but I was pleasantly surprised by the second edition. The same format but greatly increased in size. Absolutely essential for afficionados if studio pottery made in these islands
