Catalina Island Pottery and Tile: 1927-1937
by Carol Coates
This revised and updated 2nd edition of a book now called “the bible of Catalina Pottery & Tile” focuses exclusively on vintage Island-made wares, contains an updated pricing and buying guide, newly discovered historic information gathered in the 10 years since the original edition, and includes over 40 new color images. The breathtaking ceramic artwares, tablewares, and tiles produced by the prolific Catalina Clay Products Company of Santa Catalina Island, California, from 1927 to 1936 are presented in over 590 color photographs and an eloquent text. Influenced in part by the Spanish Revival Movement and Depression-era Art Deco motifs, the artistry imbued in these pieces, ranging from teapots, patio pottery, and souvenirs to pictorial murals, hand painted plates, and tile tables, is displayed. A history of the company, its wares and artisans, a bibliography, and an index are also provided. Updated values are included in the captions.
