“Bassett’s comprehensive presentation of Roseville pottery is exemplary. If you are a novice collector of Roseville, this is a wonderful place to start your research and indulge your enthusiasm… Presented beautifully… Written assuredly and with a teacher’s touch… Highly recommended.”
–Maine Antique Digest, February 2000
“Each pottery line is included in this scholarly look at the long-lived company… With additional text devoted to pottery collectors’ etiquette and ethics, condition, experimental and trial glazes, tips for identifying Roseville, a timeline of Roseville products, factory marks and artist signatures, as well as reproductions, fakes and fantasy pieces, this book appears to have it all.”
–Antique Week, March 6, 2000
