"Find the best antique and vintage collector books and price guides on antiques and collectibles that appraisers and dealers use plus expert collecting book reviews at Collectics Antique Collector Bookstore." World Antiques Weekly

One of the foremost dealers and collectors in America David Rago shares his knowledge and experience to provide a beautifully photographed guide to the major studios and artists as he explains how to appreciate and appraise individual pieces in American Art Pottery. The sumptuous forms and colors produced by studios such as Rookwood, Newcomb, Teco, Tiffany, Fulper and Roseville are detailed with rich color photography. How these studios began and who influenced their works form part of the text, but the primary focus is on allowing the reader to develop the skills to interpret and appraise the works. Enthusiasm for European and Japanese pottery swept the American crafts scene at the Centennial Exposition of 1876 in Philadelphia. This lavishly illustrated book examines the history of hand-crafted ceramics in the United States, discussing different techniques and styles, as well as the influence of such important studios as Maria Longworth Nichols's Rookwood Pottery of Cincinnati, Sam Weller's from Zanesville, Ohio, Boston's Paul Revere Pottery, Newcomb College Pottery, Low Art Tile Works, Grueby Faience, Teco, Van Briggle, George Ohr, and the Tiffany Studios.
