Price Guide to Rookwood Pottery Wall Plaques

Larry Koon is considered one of the leading experts in Rookwood Pottery. He’s authored several books and price guides on antiques, sports memorabilia and of course, American art pottery. His latest release, Price Guide to Rookwood Pottery Wall Plaques, covers those beautiful Rookwood plaques made between 1910 and 1940. The book itself, a total of 158 pages, is a beautiful work of art in its own right and features many photos of the various Rookwood wall plaques as well as the artists themselves. In fact, there are twenty five artists showcased including Mary Denzler, Lorinda Epply and Ed Hurley. Readers are treated to each of their biographies, too in this rare work. It offers as much of an an all-inclusive approach as anyone could hope for.

The book includes auction prices, values and of course, the back story for many of the plaques and how they came to be. This is certainly a must-have for anyone who appreciates art pottery and certainly those who are drawn to Rookwood Pottery.

Koon, born in West Virginia, also spent time as a newspaper columnist and is a recording artist. He was the first writer to ever publish a book on specialized auction markets and his deep passion for art as a whole is evident regardless of whether it’s an article or a book he’s writing. One conversation with Koon and you’re likely to learn the world’s record for the fastest sale of an antique or pottery piece – he’s that good.
