Salt-glazed stoneware, lead-glazed earthenware, creamware, and soft- and hard-paste porcelain are among the many items in the collection.

This essential and artistically spectacular new publication includes 200 highlights chosen for their rarity, skill, or significance as notable examples of specific production or ornamentation methods. A bibliography is included, as well as scholarly articles and two illustrated essays on the collection.
