Available Now


In 90 beautiful color and 70 clear black and white photographs, yellow ware is shown to be an attractive and important ceramic.Through this book, yellow ware is established rightfully as the transitional ware between redware in the primitive period and white ware in the art pottery movement. The utilitarian purposes for which it was used in the home and institutions in the nineteenth century made it a very common ceramic, but therefore previously ignored in discussions of American ceramic history.In this book, Joan Leibowitz presents information about the makers, their marks, and production output. The wares are organized by shapes and uses including both common and specialized forms. Practical and helpful tips for collectors are included based on the author's experience as an auctioneer and antiques dealer.Updated values are included.
