During its heyday the Zsolnay Manufactory produced architectural ceramics that embellished the interior spaces and exteriors of some of the finest public and private buildings in the Austro-Hungarian empire, as well as elegant and innovative ceramics for an international clientele. This beautifully illustrated book recounts the story of the 150-year-old company and documents some 200 examples of its work, while showing how its changing fortunes reflect the cultural, economic, and political developments in Central and Eastern Europe through two world wars and a communist takeover.
