Harker Pottery produced popular ceramic tableware for over 130 years, including early Rockingham, Yellowware, sturdy Ironstone, and delicate Pate Sur Pate.

Decorations include Flow Blue and a wide variety of popular decals.
Over 200 images of the manufacturer's different marks provide important dating references for the huge output of this prolific East Liverpool, Ohio, company.
A history of the company places the Harker Pottery among other important American firms.
It has a bibliography, glossary, index, and values in the captions.
Every American pottery collector and anyone with fond childhood memories of eating from grandmother's Harker dishes will enjoy this book.
