Full Description

The first comprehensive study of the most important ceramic innovation of the 19th century

Colorful, wildly imaginative, and technically innovative, majolica was functional and aesthetic ceramic ware. Its subject matter reflects a range of 19th-century preoccupations, from botany and zoology to popular humor and the macabre. Majolica Mania examines the medium's considerable impact, from wares used in domestic settings to monumental pieces at the World's Fairs. Essays by international experts address the extensive output of the originators and manufacturers in England--including Minton, Wedgwood, and George Jones--and the migration of English craftsmen to the U.S. New research including information on important American makers in New York, Baltimore, and Philadelphia is also featured. Fully illustrated, the book is enlivened by new photography of pieces from major museums and private collections in the U.S. and Great Britain.
