The rich colors of Frederick Rhead's Fiesta or the translucent beauty of Waterford crystal, Russel Wright's American Modern or Haviland's White House service of 1879 -- the right tableware adds personality to a celebration. But beyond their appeal to all who want to entertain in style, and their value as collectibles, china and glass wares mirror the profound cultural and economic shifts in twentieth-century America and provide a unique vantage point from which to view our society.

Illustrated with more than 200 photographs of enticing glass and ceramic objects, this luxurious volume is the first to take a comprehensive look at the modern tableware used in American homes, examining its cultures and business history as well as its design.

Fully indexed with an extensive bibliography, this is an essential volume for readers interested in American cultures and business history, collectors and admirers alike.
