This is good general reference manterial providing "some" information on all of Hall's products, but doesn't give complete information on any one pattern or line.
I have Jewel Tea and have used this book to not only document and value my own collection but to assist me when buying online to make sure I am getting the authentically old and not newer pieces at a good price.
I love the colors the way the book it layed out, its just a great book, for wishing, seeing what you got, and just a nice way to spend an evening.
Bought the book as a gift for my wife. While she is not a "professional" Hall china collector she is serious enough that ever time we go to a new city/town/state she wants to stop at an antique shop. This book is well organized and has quality photographs. The book as a gift was well received but not exactly what she was looking for. She wanted to see the full line of the Red Poppy line. While to book displays and discusses many pieces, it doesn't cateloge them in that way and to be fair I don't think that is it's intent. The book presents many of the Hall lines, gives tips on who to shop, where to shop and gives help in identifying non-authentic pieces and gives advice on determining values. It's a great book and valued in my wife's collection but it just didn't cover all pieces of Red Poppy - but perhaps no book does.
Beautiful book! Great photographs! The information in this book is helpful and accurate. The research is thorough and charts are also helpful.
I was very pleased with the book except page 50 was torn in half and missing. It is fortunate that my collectibles were not listed on that particular page!
