He was once a member of the New Jersey Lottery Commission and was a life-long member of the Ocean Cruising Club following a passage from Bermuda to the Azores in 1976 aboard his 32-foot sailboat Unlikely V, an event listed first on his own long list of accomplishments.

This book is a beautiful catalog of the porcelain figurines made by E. Boehm. It includes chapters on his life and methods, but mostly it is about his porcelains. All are pictured, either in the text in color or in the complete list (in black and white). The list includes every Boehm porcelain since the beginning, as known at the time of publishing. If you want to own Boehm porcelain, but space and funds are limited, with this book you own them all. I recommend it.

Edward Marshall Boehm (August 21, 1913 – January 29, 1969) was an American figurative expressionist sculptor, known for his porcelain figures of birds and other wildlife. Boehm explained his choice of porcelain as the medium for his art as follows: "Porcelain is a permanent creation. If properly processed and fired, its colors will never change; and it can be subjected to extreme temperatures without damage.

Edward Marshall Boehm (1913 - 1969) was an American figurative expressionist sculptor, known for his porcelain figures of birds and other wildlife. Boehm explained his choice of porcelain as the medium for his art as follows: "Porcelain is a permanent creation. If properly processed and fired, its colors will never change; and it can be subjected to extreme temperatures without damage. It is a medium in which one can portray the everlasting beauty of form and color of wildlife and nature." He and his wife founded an eponymous company, E.M. Boehm Studios, in 1950. Boehm kept a large collection of exotic birds in extensive aviaries and tropical houses at his home in Trenton. These birds became some of the subjects and inspiration for his sculptures. Many of these species were successfully bred; approximately 12 were recognized as being for the first time in captivity anywhere in the world. For these breeding successes Edward Boehm received a number of commemorative medals and plaques. Frank J. Cosentino, president of Edward Marshall Boehm, Inc., explained the importance of Boehm's hard-paste porcelain sculpture: "Prior to Edward Marshall Boehm's venture in 1950s, few, if any, American firms had ever made hard-paste porcelain sculpture that successfully compared with the fine centuries-old production of Europe and Asia." Boehm was accorded his highest honor in 1992 when a wing of the Vatican Museums in Rome was named in his memory. This was the first time in its 500-year history that one of the 13 museums in the Vatican was named for an American citizen, as the twelve other museums are named for popes and royal families. Today Boehm porcelain is in the permanent collections of one hundred thirty-four institutions globally.

This book is a beautiful catalog of the porcelain figurines made by E. M. Boehm. It includes chapters on his life and methods, but mostly it is about his porcelains. All are pictured, either in the text in color or in the complete list (in black and white). The list includes every Boehm porcelain since the beginning, as known at the time of publishing. There is also an explanation of the edition terms as used by the Boehm Studio, such as limited edition, open edition and unlimited edition. All the Boehm maker's marks are also illustrated.

If you are interested in acquiring Boehm porcelain, this book can give you a survey of the possibilities available, how many were made and thus the likelihood of being able to find the figures you want. If you want to own Boehm porcelain, but space and funds are limited, with this book you own them all. I recommend it.

Beware, this is first edition <i>this edition</i>. This is a later printing from Japan of the original US publication. This book is much thinner than the original which had plates in the volume,
Flamehammer
What a book! It is almost in brand new condition and so full of information. It shows pictures, some are in color. It give you the year the item was made, how long it was made, and how many were made. It explains how Boehm pieces are made and all the work that goes into the Boehm porcelain. If you are into Boehm Porcelain then this book is a must!!!!
