Ceramic Art of the Malibu Potteries 1926-1932

£25.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

The Malibu Potteries flourished briefly in the late 1920's, producing a wealth of dazzling tile and ceramics which can still be appreciated in countless homes and buildings throughout Southern California. This book lavishly illustrates and documents the production of a most unique company. Largely in colour, photographs reveal a rich variety of patterns, colour and the ingenious use of decorative tilework in both public buildings such as the Los Angeles City Hall, and private homes such as the Adamson House (now State owned) in Malibu. Background material includes early history of the fabulous Rancho Malibu, and its owner, the Rindge family. The authors were very fortunate to have first-hand accounts from former employees of Malibu Potteries, detailing the factory's establishment and its production processes from design to finished installation. Their recollection also provides a fascinating glimpse of earlier times in Southern California.
Some shelf-wear, mainly rubbing along the edges and corners of the softcover. Some damage to inner spine (please see photos 4 and 5) but otherwise in very good condition!
