A fascinating survey of the majolica ceramic wares produced in Victorian England, Europe, and America. Over 550 color photographs of these popular, brightly-glazed ceramics demonstrate the various forms in tablewares, serving dishes, figurals, planters, jardinieres, and vases that colored Victorian homes. Brief explanations of majolica's origins, manufacturing, and makers are included, and the items are organized into broad categories by ware type (jardinieres, plates, platters, etc.) for easy reference. Also included are a bibliography, index, and values with the photo captions.
