Available Now


California's last large pottery producer, Treasure Craft, became a major force in the giftware market from the late 1940s until 1995. The firm's Hawaiian plant and Pottery Craft stoneware art lines were enormously popular. Over 650 beautiful color photographs present widely varied ceramic collectibles produced by Treasure Craft from the late 1940s until 1995, including Disneyana items, over two hundred novelty cookie jars, Hawaiiana, figurines including Lucky California Sprites and their predecessors Naughty Gnomes, and dinnerware lines. Among the wares displayed are works by notable sculptors Ray Murray, Don Winton, and Robert Maxwell. This new book presents material on manufacturer's marks, and look-alike products. Values in the captions round out this thorough presentation.
