Synopsis

In over 725 color photographs, this comprehensive new volume illustrates the colorful and diverse dinnerware produced over a sixty year period by Universal Potteries, Inc. of Cambridge, Ohio, and its predecessor companies. Starting in 1900 with the Cambridge Art Pottery, the text outlines the "family tree" of potteries leading up to Universal itself, including The Guernsey Earthenware Co., the Oxford Pottery Co., and the Atlas-Globe China Co. Examples of wares from each of these early companies are shown, along with a broad array of items dating from Universal's actual incorporation in the 1930s to the phasing out of its dinnerware line in 1960. Plates, platters, bowls, teapots, pitchers, jugs, cups, casseroles, and more are all shown in Universal's classic shapes, including Ballerina, Camwood Ivory, Upico, Fascination, and Vogue. Decorations highlighted in the photos include Cherrytone, Poppy, Moss Rose, Bittersweet, Cattail, American Beauty Rose, Old Curiosity Shop, Southern Garden, and many more. Universal enthusiasts are sure to find their favorites here! Values for all items are included in the captions.
