Collecting 20th-century ceramics is a rapidly-expanding field, inspired both by the availability and affordability of the pieces and by the tastes of younger collectors. The growing popularity of antiques and collectibles in the USA is primarily due to the success of PBS's Antiques Roadshow. In addition the growth of the Internet has fuelled an exciting e-market led by eBay but also joined by the traditional international auction houses. Antiques and collectibles are accessible to people in the twenty-first century in a way that has not been seen before, thereby broadening the base and strengthening the market. Ceramics in particular is very much a global market, with British ceramics just as popular stateside. Over 200 factories from North America and Britain are explored - in alphabetical order for easy reference - and for each there is information on its history, innovations, styles, and designs, and a factory mark; attention is also given to key artists and designers. Price values are included. This is the first guide to cover a wide range of 20th-century British and North American ceramics factories in detail. Around 600 pieces are featured, including pre-war items - such as those by Clarice Cliff and Susie Cooper - that have long been popular, the innovative trends of the 1950s and 1960s that are currently gathering a huge following, and the collectibles of the future: wares of the 1970s and 1980s. Includes familiar US names such as Russel Wright, Hall China Company, Sascha Brastoff, Stangl Pottery and many more. For each item there is a price code. Finally, there is an extensive directory of collectors' clubs, places to visit, and further reading.Price values are included.
