Please read WHOLE description! Here is a VERY hard to find hard cover guide book for Granite Ware (graniteware) titled...THE COLLECTOR'S ENCYCLOPEDIA of GRANITE WARE with Updated Values Colors Shapes and Values by Helen Greguire.
The book is in good used condition with just a bit of wear to the tips of the front and back covers from use and re-shelving. INSIDE the pages are at least 99% free of any marks, stains or writing. IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a second hand book there is a faint smell of smoke to the book -- I've buried my nose in the book a few times and it is not overpowering..more faint. Normally I would not offer such a book, but it is so hard to find, I wanted to tell you that although not overwhelming, it has lingered.
The book is filled with color illustrations in color. This early-out-of-print book pictures and identifies over a thousand different examples of antique granite ware. Contents include a definition of Granite Ware, patterns and color descriptions, shades of color, enameling types, ware names and makers, how to determine the new Granite Ware and advice on cleaning, care and preservation.
27 sections provide wonderful color plates showing over 1,000 examples of Granite Ware, everything from plates, bowls, pitchers, kettles, baking pans to wash basins, advertising and cross collectibles items, roasters, household cleaning items and decorative items such as vases and ash trays.
