Completely different from any other book of marks ever published, this dictionary provides the quickest way to identify American, English, and European porcelain. Once a piece is identified, research and experience (the color, texture, weight, and general "feel") tell the rest of the story.

The unique index of 5,000 marks, listed by prominent features and with a complete cross-reference, shows at a glancegeographical location of mark, factory or family name of manufacturer, type of ware, method of producing the mark on the object,  color of the mark, and  date when the mark was used.

The authors have included a foreword, bibliography, index of manufacturers, and a reliable guide to the often misunderstood marks of Delft, Sevres, and England 1842-1883.
