Miller's Twentieth-Century Ceramics: A Collector's Guide to British and North American Factory-Produced Ceramics by Paul Atterbury
Twentieth-century ceramics are going from strength to strength, appealing in the availability and affordability of the pieces. This guide explores over 200 factories presented in alphabetical order, covering pre-war makes and the innovative designs of the 1950s and 1960s. The most celebrated designers are discussed, such as Moorcroft, Clarice Cliff, Susie Cooper, Midwinter, and Hornsea, along with the lesser-known but increasingly collectable makers. Key dates, areas of production, and principal designers are highlighted in every entry; over 550 colour photographs are accompanied by reproductions of marks; and a price range is given for each item shown. The book concludes with a glossary, a directory of collector's clubs, recommendations of where to buy and visit and suggestions for further reading. Now fully revised, with all prices updated, and a new section dealing with additional factories or makers who are attracting interest from collectors today, this book is essential to anyone who deals in or is interested in the exciting variety of twentieth-century ceramics available.
