Ceramic Bygones: And Other Unusual Domestic Pottery

Front Cover
Bloomsbury USA, 2000 - Antiques & Collectibles - 40 pages

How would one recognise an argyll, a trembleuse or a bachelor's set? And how can one identify a pineapple stand, a spoon warmer or a coach pot? Such items were in regular use in daily life in the nineteenth century - and all were made of pottery. In Ceramic Bygones many such intriguing but obsolete items are described and illustrated.
