Chintz ceramics were introduced in the late 19th century, and rose to great heights of popularity in the first half of the 20th century as they were exported around the world. This classic work, now in its third edition, is better than ever for dealers and collectors. The brilliant floral bouquets adorning chintz ceramics are displayed in nearly 500 gorgeous color photographs. The major English chintz manufacturers, Royal Winton, James Kent, Lord Nelson, Shelley, Crown Ducal, and Empire, are discussed and many examples of their chintz wares are identified and shown. Over one hundred patterns are amply illustrated, including the popular DuBarry, Rosalynde, and Summertime patterns. Lesser known firms and American importers are also explored, along with the Japanese manufacturers of hand-painted chintz. Manufacturers' marks are identified and dated. A value guide is included with newly updated prices.
This book clearly shows the author's enthusiasm and knowledge of chintz ceramics. Beautifully illustrated and packed with information for both the novice and experienced collector of chintz china. Highly recommended!
