The Zsolnay Manufactory represents a triumph of Hungarian applied arts, for during its heyday it produced elegant and innovative ceramics for an international clientele as well as architectural ceramics that embellished some of the finest public and private buildings in the Austro-Hungarian empire. This striking book recounts the story of the 150-year-old company and presents numerous examples of its work, showing how its changing fortunes reflect the cultural, economic, and political developments in Central and Eastern Europe.

The book provides an introduction and essays by European scholars that examine the manufactory's history. They describe its founding, its years of international fame, its greatest achievements in both ceramics and architectural ceramics in the early twentieth century, its nationalization after the world wars and the Communist takeover, and its present workshop activities. The book provides new photographs of some two hundred objects and designs as well as a selection of fifty archival photographs from throughout the manufactory's years of production. There are also detailed entries for all work shown, biographies of the manufactory's premier artists and of Zsolnay family members, and a glossary of ceramics production techniques.

This illustrated book is the catalogue for an exhibition at the Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, Design, and Culture from July 17 to October 13, 2002.

Having just enjoyed my first visit to Hungary, I became aware for the first time of this wonderful pottery. I first saw it at the flea market near the airport; then bought some at an antique shop near the Budapest Opera House. What I was told about the work of this factory fascinated me so I am glad to now have this beautiful reference book.
Wat!?
Beautiful and helpful book.

This is a valuable book if you are interested in the history of the Zsolnay Manufactory. The Zsolnay family and their manufacture has a unique role in the Hungarian industrialization and in the Hungarian history applied arts, as this manufacture has become one of the best in the world within a few decades starting from virtually nowhere, thanks to the genius of Vilmos Zsolnay and his daughters who attracted numerous first class artists and businessman to work for their manufacture. The book covers the entire history of the manufacture, from the early years together with the historical background up until the contemporary production. The book provides a balanced view since it covers not only the world famous Art Nouveau and Art Deco lustre ceramics, but also the production of the architectural ceramics. The book contains high quality illustrations, but they are not as numerous as one would expect.
