Twenty-one chapters presenttwenty-one different subjects in the field of faience and porcelain.

The second section of the book compririses the story of faience in five major Europoean countries. The third section focuses on the discovery and development of European porcelain, its prevailing styles, its peak of achievement, and its decline.
