Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Book III in Jim & Susan Harran's series is all-new, with no repeats from their first two books. Over 1,000 color photographs are included this time, and the book concentrates on cups and saucers that are readily available to collectors, rather than museum pieces that are rarely seen. An introduction with interesting facts about tea, coffee, and chocolate begins the books--it was due to the popularity of these three beverages that cups and saucers evolved into such important, useful, and now collectible items. Details of the authors' trip to the Lenox manufacturing facility in Pomona, New Jersey, are shared, taking the reader through all of the steps in the process, from raw materials to finished product. An expanded section on cabinet cups and saucers is provided, and some of the categories from books I and II are again covered: late nineteenth and twentieth century European and American dinnerware, English bone china and earthenware cups and saucers, miniatures, and mustache cups. There are also two brand new categories in the book, Japanese cups and saucers and art glass cups and saucers made by the leading glass factories in Europe and the United States. A marks section, helpful appendix, and bibliography are once again included, as well as useful tips for dealers and collectors.
