Description


Your piece of porcelain may feature an anchor, but how do you know whether it was made at Chelsea or Bow? How can you tell if the mark is genuine? This handy and easy-to-use pocket guide helps you to make sense of a vast, and often confusing, field. With more than 3,000 commonly found marks for all types of pottery and porcelain, and information on the makers, factories, and artists, it is simply the best on-the-spot resource for expert collectors, auctioneers, and novices alike. Line drawings throughout illustrate the different styles and patterns, maps showing the locations of major factories worldwide, and the color photographs of actual pottery and porcelain marks make dating and authenticating pieces even easier.
