Since its introduction to the American market in 1949, the distinctive blue and white dinnerware depicting Currier & Ives scenes has remained one of the Royal China Company’s most popular lines. An essential resource for all levels of collectors, this is the first full color reference book to document the Currier & Ives dinnerware and its richly nostalgic American scenes. Each of the nearly 150 photos includes details of the shape and the size of the piece, describes the scene, and provides a value. History is also provided about Currier & Ives—the source of this dinnerware’s decorative art—and about the Royal China Company. While the most popular color is blue, Currier & Ives dinnerware can also be found in other colors; this guide covers all details the connoisseur needs to know.
