Collectible Enameled Ware: American & European is a celebration of those vintage wares that humbly served in the kitchens and households of the past, but have since achieved status as highly sought-after antiques. It's not only American-made enameled ware that's creating such a stir.European enameled ware, with its vibrant colors and spectacular graphic designs, is also highly in demand. A concise text and over 375 color photographs with value ranges offer antiques dealers, collectors, and interior designers a close-up look at the beautiful examples of enameled ware produced throughout Europe and the United States between the late 1800s and 1940. Decorative patterns, floral graphic designs, one-of-a-kind items-these are but a few of the attributes that lead many collectors to think of antique enameled ware as relics of a lost art.
