Here is a sweeping survey of the popular spongeware ceramics produced in Scotland, England, Europe, and North America for one hundred years, illustrated with over 975 colour photographs. Often associated with Pennsylvania German folk art, these tablewares, serving pieces, tea sets, children's sets, and vases are decorated in colourful patterns achieved primarily through the simple, yet engaging, sponge-printing technique. Included are a thorough definition of spongeware, identifications of the patterns and potters, their marks, and a bibliography. Current (2001) market values are provided in the captions.
This copy is in excellent, pretty much 'as new' condition, with no marks.
