Table of Contents
Books published about pottery are not expected to contain much in the way of humor. Fascinating, informational, beautiful...yes. Knee-slapping laughs? Not too often. Czechoslovakian Pottery: Czeching Out America proves to be the exception to that rule. It combines both education and entertainment.
Czech Pottery chronicles the search for a variety of pieces throughout America, and the ensuing adventures of the authors, who are sisters. The authors explain,"Our purpose...is to help new collectors learn about all kinds of Czech pottery. We deliberately included pottery in a wide price range, pottery of many different patterns and in as many colors as possible."
Price, market and pattern information provide practical tips for collectors, and a concise history of the nation of Czechoslovakia and Czech pottery lends background to the subject. The Czechoslovakian Collectors Guild International uses the comprehensive list of pottery marks which the authors illustrate in their book; over 380 marks in a 38-page chapter. Further into the book, gorgeous photographs of 2,000 pieces of pottery feature, among other items: salt and pepper shakers, tea sets, candlesticks, and 12 different styles of figural moose pitchers.
