Summary
"Rookwood Pottery of Cincinnati - the largest, longest-lasting, and arguably most important producer of American art pottery - reflected the country's cultural and commercial milieux in the production, marketing, and consumption of its products." "Rookwood and the Industry of Art is a critical appreciation of Rookwood's rise to its commercial pinnacle, assessing the labor practices and production of ceramic ware as a way to explore anxiety about women's roles outside the home as well as about industrialization, immigration, and urbanization."--Jacket.
