Description - Royal Doulton by Gregg Whittecar

A lavishly illustrated collector's volume showcasing the finest ceramic art wares produced by Royal Doulton at their Lambeth and Burslem Studios in England. It features fine pieces from private collections, dating from the 1870s to 1945. Many of these have never before been seen publicly. Over 600 photographs bring these treasures directly to the connoisseur of fine decorative ceramic art. The book details the company's founding by John Doulton and his son Henry, and features many of Doulton's premier artists, including George Tinworth, the Barlow family, Mark V. Marshall, and Charles Noke. It traces the rise of the Doulton range from stoneware and faience art pottery to hand painted vases, vellum figures, and flambe, titanium, and experimental glazes. An invaluable guide for the art pottery collector, this beautiful book provides a rare look into the fascinating history of one of the world's most renowned potteries. A value reference completes the book.
