No work like it exists - Impressive’ – The Times Literary Supplement
'Recommended to collectors - Excellent' - Country Life
An essential reference work for collectors, dealers and all those interested in ceramics, this dictionary lucidly explains specialized words and phrases together with many foreign terms. The dictionary proper is concerned with the physical nature of pottery and porcelain — materials, processes, types, patterns and styles — and with periods, dynasties, and general categories of wares. An introductory list, compiled by John Cushion, giving information on the principal English and Continental factories, provides a master reference for proper names mentioned in the dictionary.
