American Dinnerware: Turn Of The Century, 1880's To 1920's

In this beautiful unique resource, Joanne Jasper, author of our Collector's Encyclopedia of Homer Laughlin China, identifies 16 American china companies in operation from the late 1800s into the beginning of the 20th century that are not well known by today's collectors although their pieces fill antique shops. The historical background of each company is told, including any especially interesting personal information about the founders or proprietors. In addition to the extensive text and value listings, there are over 300 full-color photos along with hundreds of vintage catalog reprints and advertisements. Each dish is identified and valued. Collectors and dealers wishing to research and evaluate old china not found in other books will find this guide reliable, easy-to-use, and most helpful. 1996 values. AUTHORBIO: Joanne Jasper, an antique lover and Homer Laughlin fan for years, visited the Homer Laughlin plant in Newell, West Virginia with her daughter and decided to make her idea for a collector's reference a reality. She spent countless hours researching, interviewing, and taking photographs. Her book has become a bestseller. REVIEW: Planet Patchwork Quilting Bookbriefs says this book "contains a well-done primer in foundation techniques, and dozens of creative border designs, both traditional and contemporary. Perhaps most important, the authors provide a series of questions to ponder as you decide what kind of border you want."

All good.


This is not a book on dinnerware - it's a book on pottery; the lowest form of food service next to the paper plate. There is no mention of the great china factories: Lenox, Syracuse or Pickard. The book should be renamed Diner Ware.
