Absolutely the best introduction to mid-century modern dinnerware. Covers manufacturers, styles, designers, and prices (although a bit outdated now). Wonderful photography delights the eye and aids in identifying makers and styles. If you collect modern dishware from the 40s through the 60s, this is The Bible. The author also wrote two even more detailed volumes as follow-ups, if you can find them.

This is the must-have reference tool for collectors and would-be collectors.
