Table of Contents

The twentieth century offers the new collector a wide range of opportunities to build up a collection, from coffee sets, dinner wares, decorative plaques, egg cups and even chamber pots to a whole range of novelties that were manufactured by the pottery industry across Europe and America.

The market for collectables has expanded greatly over the last twenty years with many people starting to buy their first examples from local flea markets and auction houses. Also, the ordinary person is now much more knowledgeable as a result of the many popular television programs and books. More recently new opportunities to buy and sell pottery have been established via the internet with auction sites such as eBay. This new way of buying pottery has enabled many collectors to find rare and unusual examples that were often not for sale in this country at the time of production.

This book is for the novice collector of ceramics produced in the twentieth century, whether a collector who concentrates on one factory or designer, such as Clarice Cliff, or on a type of item, such as toast racks, egg cups or preserve pots. Often collectors will naturally tend to a theme or become more focused as their collection develops. This book covers the diverse range of pottery produced during the twentieth century, aiming to provide a starting point for all those collectors.

  • The latest in the successful Starting to Collect series, accessible information for the new collector, written by an acknowledged expert on twentieth century ceramics
  • Fifty British manufacturers are included, as well as twenty-two of the most interesting and important companies from around the world
  • Tips on how to care for your pieces and how best to display your collection
