From glasses and bowls to serving dishes and ornamental pieces, we use china and glass every day of our lives. China & Glass shows you the fascinating and varied designs and colours that you can collect, and explains how to best display, and use both old and new pieces to create the most appealing look for your home.

The huge variety of china and glassware featured in the first part of the book is organised by shape, colour and pattern. Every type of ceramic is explored: porcelain and earthenware, including transfer prints, hand-painted patterns, interesting and unique glazes, and raised and moulded designs. Glassware ranges from the cut and pressed to the commemorative or the strictly functional.

The second part showcases stunning table settings for inspired informal and sophisticated dining, and gives us a look at the creative ways in which well known collectors store and display their china and glass. From pretty tea-time china to one-off ornamental objects, from delicate glass water jugs to elegantly engraved wine goblets with which to entertain, China & Glass details ways of pulling together pieces and using them in a unique and artful way around the house.
