I was very pleased with the information on the McCoy Pottery Company and the pottery manufactured by McCoy that this book offered. I would recommened this book to anyone interested in collecting McCoy pottery. This book has a large selection of photos of the various types of pottery produced and the different markings used on the pottery.
This book is great. It contains so many colorful McCoy pottery items and descriptions are good, cost value of each piece and all is great to read about so you know what your items are worth. The book is easy to read. I would definitely buy again as there are many, many pages of the different manufactured items to view from many years of McCoy manufacturing.. If one has pieces of McCoy then they can look up and find them like I did my items.
I received this book as a gift. It is a great reference to have when I am shopping for McCoy pottery and want to make sure I am not over paying. The detailed history of McCoy is also very interesting. My only complaint is that one page of descriptions was duplicated and as a result, it is missing accurate descriptions for one page or about 15 items.
I am very happy with this book. It has great pictures and gives a lot of information that I did not know about McCoy pottery. I found one of my pieces that I suspected was McCoy, but it was unmarked. I was glad to find out I was right.
Great book for researching your pottery to finding a price range when buying it. No book is ever complete but if you need to know if your getting the real deal these books are the way to go. Thank goodness for & they stuff sold here. I can get just about anything here in .
This is a well-organized reference to McCoy. It contains a history of McCoy; this added knowledge adds to the fun of collecting and allow you to sound more as if you know what you are doing. Then there are pages on the different "marks" of the pottery. There is a dated value guide. Nevertheless, I find it easer to do my own comparing. The big plus is the color pictures that show what is available. For those discriminate people that do not just buy anything that says McCoy there is an index. It is also fun to see you McCoy pieces in the book.McCoy Pottery Ultimate Reference
