Victorian China Fairings The Collectors Guide by Derek Johnson


Fairings were definitely made for the huge English Fair market. The word “fair” comes from the Latin feria meaning holiday, a great day for the masses, a chance to catch up on gossip, fashions, new ideas and generally to have a good time and perhaps buy or win a small china ornament. Today we call these small German ornaments of the Victorian/ Edwardian period, Fairings.This comprehensive work is the definitive guide for the novice and experienced collector of fairings, covering the history, values, repairs and fakes, with over 400 beautiful photographs in colour. These photographs are all indexed for quick, easy reference as to identification and value. The only book available on the subject, Victorian China Fairings – The Collectors’ Guide is an absolute must-have reference for collectors, auctioneers and dealers.The AuthorDerek H. Jordan has been a keen collector of Fairings for twelve years and owns the foremost collection of pieces in the world. He was a founder member of The Fairings Collectors’ Society.
