Synopses & Reviews
Volume 2 is organized alphabetically by manufacturer, with brief histories, product information, date codes, 950+ dated backstamps, nearly 900 color photographs with individual value ranges of ware predominantly used in restaurants, hotels, clubs, schools, and so forth with a sprinkling of the subjects offered in Volume 1, and more than 350 catalog pages. Coverage includes American as well as foreign china companies. The extensive appendix includes an additional 89 manufacturers and 146 distributors, along with capsule histories and dated logos of 114 hotel and 170 restaurant chains. Particularly useful is the lengthy index which contains a cross-reference to backstamps lacking the manufacturer's name. This book would be of value to any dealer or collector of porcelain or vitrified china dinnerware. Priced and illustrated. 8.5 x 11. 2003 values.
