Apparently the big thing atm is old auction catalogues. If you've got any old auction catalogues, or can get them cheap then they are a good source for id-ing ceramics. Unfortunately, studio and provincial pottery (aside from Tomas Toft slipware and Delft) wasn't in fashion decades ago so the liklihood of finding some amongst all the Spode and Wedgwood and Dresden is fairly small.
