Very scarce trade catalogue with exquisite chromolithographs by Charles Verneau--the famous Parisian printer of color lithographed posters. Each color plate displays about a dozen pieces of faience or porcelain, each labeled for its use (pot a crème, coquetier, moutardier, ravier, etc.) A valuable record of carriage-trade table settings, serving pieces, tea & coffee sets; chamber pots, foot baths, pitchers, & other items for the toilette. All in a great variety of designs and styles.
