This book traces the history of bathrooms over four thousand years and describes the development of ceramic fixtures for washing and bathing. Changing styles of design and decoration are followed through classical, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, self-coloured ware, the Victorian revival and into the twenty-first century. This progression is illustrated with colourful catalogue pages, diagrammatic drawings, photographs of historic baths, bidets and washbasins and archive pictures showing production environments of the early twentieth century.
