Copyright 1999 Values updated 2005

First released in 1991, this pottery book has been greatly expanded, with hundreds of new color photographs and new information about the beautiful work of the potters of California. Over 30 different artists and companies are represented - company histories, interesting background information, as well as marks and signatures complement the gorgeous photographs found in each section. All items featured are given collector values reflecting today's secondary market. Chipman's goal is to showcase the best the ceramic industry has to offer - the prominent and innovative studio-level producers as well as the major manufacturers, including Batchelder, Bauer, Kay Finch, Sascha Brastoff, Metlox, Vernon, and many others.

This book is the result of a burgeoning interest in all facets of California ceramics among collectors and dealers throughout the country. This book embraces the vividly colored earthenware dishes manufactured in the 1930s and 1940s by industrial plants in and around Los Angeles.

Here's a sampling of the makers included:

  • Bauer
  • Winfield
  • American Ceramic Products
  • Metlox
  • Howard Pierce
  • Twin Winton
  • Roselane
  • Franciscan
  • and many more!
