This thick hardcover book is packed with text and illustrations, the sheer measure of which admittedly took the author nearly a quarter century to research and compile. The book is an indispensable aid for properly identifying pottery, porcelain, and clay pieces. The various manufacturer listings contain paragraphs outlining the history of each company as well as interesting "insider" information. Both the novice and veteran collector can ID their merchandise quickly and easily. -K. DeCiantis

A new edition would help fill the holes with input from collectors in particular.
My husband dragged out his entire collection of restaurant china and was able to accurately identify every single piece by the maker. Since he is not interested in resale, the lack of current valuation was not an issue. Being able to get insight into each piece was of great import. He is also not a collector of sets; he has a lot of random pieces he was able to place geographically and in time.
This is an amazing, well researched guide to US made china and would be a great addition to the collector's library.
Have two copies , one for the house and one to take to auctions & antique shows.
