Rookwood Pottery: The Glaze Lines
The Rookwood pottery, founded in Cincinnati, Ohio, produced experimental decorated and commercial pottery from 1880 until 1967. This new book stands ahead of all other references by offering the most complete understanding of Rookwood products, and it places Rookwood's glaze lines in the context of the pottery's history. Author Anita Ellis conclusively explains the Decorated Wares, especially those made after 1915 which have always been problematic, and categorizes and defines the Commercial Ware for the first time. The book is unique in offering the most complete set of Rookwood pottery, potter and decorator marks; a thorough glossary of terms; and all the glaze lines. Over 200 beautiful color photographs of the elegant Rookwood pottery shapes illustrate the glaze lines. A values reference and charts of the talented decorators are included.
