Welcome to the Shantique Gallery
Come on in, pull up a comfy chair & relax...
Here you'll find articles and other information of general
interest to pottery collectors, as well as specific topics of interest for majolica collectors (Of course, with a special
emphasis on French and Austrian majolica!). There are tips for spotting fakes and reproductions, tables of manufacturers
marks & dates, histories of famous manufacturers and products. There's even a bit of general history (but just
a bit, I promise!)
The Library is divided into three main areas--
1. General Interest where you'll

2. Dates & Marks where you'll
find tables of manufacturers marks and the dates of usage.
3. Manufacturer Info where you'll find history and
