This instructive book is the first of its kind to provide extensive historical information on the manufacturers and importers, along with in-depth analysis, descriptions, and current values. A gallery of more than 500 fascinating color photos reveals the extensive range of plates, dishes, and specialty china items, upon which were emblazoned artistic scenes. Of historical interest throughout America's cities and towns, this treasure trove of souvenir china will be cherished not only by those fascinated by America's past glories, but also collectors of other prized porcelains such as R.S. Prussia and Royal Bayreuth. Beyond its principal focus, the book also touches on other types of pictorial souvenir china including Historical Staffordshire. It will appeal to collectors of photos, postcards, World's Fair collectibles, souvenir spoons, and other related areas of collecting. If you only have one book on souvenirs, this should be it. 1998 values.
