Her growing obsession with both the pottery and its history took her to museums, libraries, and shows throughout the United States and the Netherlands. With the aid of many antiques shows, auctions, and later the internet, Phyllis, together with her husband Gene, amassed a diverse collection encompassing a wide variety of Gouda wares. And after ten years in the works, Phyllis authored the book The World of Gouda Pottery in 1998.</p> <p>Lots 554-557, 568, 578-580, 593-595, 615-617, 627, 652-656, 671, 696-698, 714, 715, 726729, 763, 786-789, 821-827, 846, 847, 880, 898, 900-903, 930-934, 970-972, 994-997, 1058.</p> <p>6</p> <p>8 7 9</p> <p>1.
