Table of Contents

The colorful earthenwares known as Majolica are once again a popular part of the nostalgic revival of Victorian taste in interior decoration.
This book presents a new analysis of Majolica set against its cultural-historical background. Hundreds of forms in dozens of patterns, especially American and British ware with a sampling of European pieces, are displayed in over 550 color photographs. The text presents new research and the examples are individually identified by style, pattern, maker, size and date. Short histories of the manufacturers are presented as they relate to Majolica wares. The price guide will be a valuable tool for collectors and dealers.
Majolica's long history begins with Italian Renaissance tin-glazed wares; over the centuries its styles and techniques spread to France and England.
With the advent of mechanization, the wares could be mass produced. Majolica became popular among the rising middle class in England, Europe, and the United States.
