Abstract:

This long-awaited collector's book beautifully showcases a unique line of pottery that was overlooked and underrated for many years. Regionally affiliated with the Muncie, Indiana, area, Muncie pottery exhibits harmonious colors and an honest style which collectors have recently come to appreciate. The history, and development of this interesting pottery is entwined with its parent company, the Gill Clay Pot Company. Informative discussions about this company, as well as a section on James S. Gill & Sons and the Gill Brothers, are provided within the pages of this colorful book. Over 200 brilliant full-color photographs have been selected to represent the Muncie line. In addition, many black and white original company photographs and catalog reprints showcase the rich history of this interesting pottery. Aladdin lamps, Muncie glazes, wall pockets, Reuben Haley designs, and candlesticks comprise just a few sections of the book. Collectors will thoroughly enjoy-learning about this beautiful pottery, once just of local interest, that has risen to a national collectible level.
