Today, many pieces are still very affordable, and collectors everywhere are searching for art pottery treasures.

More than 215 potteries are listed here from A to Z.  There is also a full section on tile factories following the art pottery portion of the book.Kovels' American Art Pottery is extensively illustrated with more than 700 beautiful color and black-and-white photographs of art pottery pieces.

Nice book and if hadn't taken more then a month to get and writing them a note,it would have been all good.

I really liked this book. It was more of a historic look at pottery, so if you are looking for a "reference guide" this isn't your best choice. However, if you are looking to educate yourself on pottery in general, the markings, where certain pieces were made and how the different companies overlapped, this book can really do that for you.

Despite the dozens of volumes devoted to collecting American art pottery, Kovel's still has yet to be outdone. If you had to buy just one book, this is the one. Miller's (Rago & Perrault) comes in 2nd, but doesn't include examples of maker's marks. Kovel's does.

Truly an indispensable volume for serious art pottery collectors.
Zaryagan
Good guide to art pottery. It is sorted by maker and includes pictures of their work and marks. I may purchase some other Kovel books or perhaps subscribe to their web service.
Perongafa
Terrific resource for a collector.
Bad Sunny
Essential addition to my art pottery reference library
Steelrunner
Nice general reference book.
If you've ever wondered if your "find" is indeeed authentic, this book will resolve the majority of your questions.

In addition, it is a beautifully designed book with many luminous photographs and closeup details. I'm proud to display it on my table and carry it while antique shopping. It has always been met with a knowledgeable nod.
