"Fat Lava" is about the trendy german pottery with lava-glazes, that is very sought-after in the last years. The book gives a lot of information about several companies and shows the variety of the objects of that period.
"Alla Moda" helps you to identify italian ceramic brands like Bitossi, Bertoncello or Fratelli Fanciullacci. The books have got price-lists with them, so that you can evaluate the value of your finds on fleamarkets or in vintage shops. Even in the 60s and 70s there have been produced copies of successful designs, so that today vintage buyers are often confused and ask themselves, is this an original or not? These books help you make this sure, they are really helpful and informative for aficionados of mid century ceramics.
