Summary

Summary

Book III in Jim & Susan Harran's series is all-new, with no repeats from their first two books. Over 1,000 color photographs are included this time, and the book concentrates on cups and saucers that are readily available to collectors. An expanded section on cabinet cups and saucers is provided, and some of the categories from books I and II are again covered: late nineteenth and twentieth century European and American dinnerware, English bone china and earthenware cups and saucers, miniatures, and mustache cups. There are also two brand new categories in the book, Japanese cups and saucers and art glass cups and saucers made by the leading glass factories in Europe and the United States. A marks section, helpful appendix, and bibliography are once again included, as well as useful tips for dealers and collectors. 2007 values.


Author Notes

Jim Harran and his wife Susan have been researching, collecting, and writing about antiques for many years. As an antique dealer, Harran covers shows and auctions for the magazine Antique Week. He also writes feature articles on antiques and a monthly column called "The World of Ceramics."

A specialist in antique cups and saucers, Harran saw a real need for a good reference book on the subject. Together with his wife, Harran wrote the book Collectible Cups and Saucers. With over 400 full-color photographs, the reference guide is written with the collector in mind and provides information on how cups and saucers were made and decorated, manufacturer's information, and helpful facts such as dates and current values. Collectible Cups and Saucers is for the beginner cup and saucer collector as well as the advanced collector, dealer, or appraiser.
