An essential reference work for collectors, dealers, and potters, this dictionary embraces the vast range of ceramic types and terminology from antiquity to the present day. It provides a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the world of ceramics, from the humble brick to the most exquisite porcelain. Specialized words and phrases are lucidly explained, together with many foreign terms. The dictionary proper is concerned with the physical nature of pottery and porcelain--materials, processes, types, decorative patterns, and styles--and with periods, dynasties, and general categories of wares. An introductory list of the principal English and Continental factories, their dates, marks, and the personalities associated with them, provides a master reference for proper names and completes an invaluable book.
