The Observer’s Book of Pottery and Porcelain by Mary & Geoffrey Payton hits the £1 shelf in my shop.
Frederick Warne & Co., 1973, Hardback in dust wrapper.
No. 51 in the series. From the cover: This book is primarily for the amateur collector but also for those who enjoy just browsing among the unattainable in museums, Stately Homes or salerooms. Special attention is given to the kind of thing that can still be collected by those of us who can spare only limited sums to indulge our fancy. A large proportion of the book is devoted to the various potteries and main types of collectable items, arranged in alphabetical order, and an historical outline of the development of pottery and porcelain forms the introduction. The book ends with lists of useful dates, useful books, notable collections and factory marks. Aids to recognition and warnings of pitfalls are also given.
Very Good in Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper. Price Clipped.
Turquoise boards with Blue titling to the Spine & Upper Board.
192 pages. Index. 5¾” x 3¾”.
