This book has been an extremely helpful reference source for this antiques dealer. Full of excellent photographs of both common and hard to find Majolica along with great information about makers and clear images of the marks. A invaluable addition to my reference books.

Format: Hardcover
The striking images along with rich and enlightening editorial by Nicholas Dawes, lets everyone's favorite pottery achieve it's glory in print. Whether you're a seasoned collector, casual admirer, or curious browser, if you've ever been fascinated by the magical lustre of glazes on an authentic piece of antique majolica, this book will heighten your appreciation beyond expectation. Highly recommended as the current bible on this most intriguing and treasured branch of ceramics.

From the inside flap:
"Majolica" is a lavishly illustrated and comprehensive examination of the stunning art of majolica-- the extremely poplar, highly collectible Victorian earthenware that is enjoying a revival. Nicholas M. Dawes, a specialist in decorative arts, particularly nineteenth - and twentieth-century glass and ceramics, and the author of "Lalique Glass" (Crown, 1986) traces the techniques, innovations, influences, and inspirations of the majolica artists.
