************A LITTLE HISTORY*************

Although luster ware has been treasured as an heirloom in old American families for a century, and is to be found in many collec tions, it has only recently been generally sought for by collectors, and a majority of dealers in antiques do not carry a piece of it in stock. The precise reason for this lack of interest is difficult to ascertain, for much of the ware is intrinsically very beautiful, and from the antiquarian's point of view it ranks with other English pottery of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.

The finest luster ware was made in Italy and Spain in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, but little of it is to be found in this country outside of the museums, and it does not concern us in the present connection. It was an English product that our forefathers used, and though inferior to the earlier ware in many ways, it is interesting, and practically the only kind collected to-day. After passing through a crude stage in its development in England, lusterware came into fashion here a hundred years ago as "best china," following and rivaling Lowestoft in that capacity. So it is not to be disregarded by the student or collector of early American household furnishings and tableware.

******Now that a demand for English luster is beginning to be felt, it is safe to say that prices will advance. It is all comparatively rare in this country, and the wise collector will not tarry in securing what he can of it at once.*******

This purchase will include insurance. Thank you so much for looking.
