New. A very special surprise awaits readers of Mary J. McCaslin's second book on Royal Bayreuth porcelain! On one of her research trips to the Royal Bayreuth Factory in Germany, Mary was presented with the original pattern and sketch books used by the factory artists. Though the pages were falling apart and the content irreplaceable, she was allowed to borrow them for use in this book. As a result, Royal Bayreuth, A Collector's Guide, Book II is filled with century-old pictures of the artists' work, an invaluable and fascinating asset for historians and collectors of this fine porcelain. Collectors can verify that a questionable piece is indeed Royal Bayreuth, or just marvel at the old artwork. Collectors will also be thrilled with the color illustrations. 1560 items were photographed in splendid color and described in detail. The popular SunBonnet Babies line is beautifully documented with a multi-page, all-color spread, history, and black and white advertisements. Other Royal Bayreuth lines receiving special attention include: Old Tettau Blue, Pablo Picasso Dinnerware, Imperial, Lithophane, Whiteware, Sunbonnet Babies and limited editions. Several pages of the many different marks found on Royal Bayreuth porcelain are illustrated, and a brief history of the company opens the book. The author also includes a guide to the categories of porcelain and gives tips to identifying Royal Bayreuth. This book does come with a separate price guide supplement; values are as of 2000.
