Intended primarily as a resource for collectors, this dictionary includes entries on individuals, styles, movements, techniques, and themes associated with Wedgwood ceramics. Includes black-and-white photographs, color plates, a Wedgwood chronology, Wedgwood trade marks, registry marks, pattern number prefixes, the Wedgwood family tree, and a bibliography.
In celebration of the bicentennial of the establisment in 1759 by Josiah Wedgwood of his pottery works, the Buten Museum commissioned this compilation of artists who took part in inspiring or creating Wedgwood ceramics. Part One includes an alphabetized listing of artists with biographical information and, when available, names of their works. Part Two is a listing of the works themselves, with several photographs.
