California Faience at once invokes both the familiar and the exotic. It is a name fortuitously chosen for a ceramic enterprise that operated in Berkeley, California, from 1913 to 1959. Its wares found homes in humble cottages and the great castle of William Randolph Hearst. This book presents, for the first time, a comprehensive overview of the history and wares of California Faience and related West Coast Porcelain, Potlatch Pottery and Deer Creek Pottery. 280 pages, with over 700 illustrations.
