Chinese Export Ceramics

“Chinese export ceramics are highly valued and collectible. This beautiful book tells the story of Chinese ceramics exported to Europe, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia from the 14th to the 19th centuries through the V&A’s extensive and celebrated collection. ”

It illustrates the extraordinary range of styles and decorative patterns, the integration of European and Middle Eastern shapes and designs, and the circulation and uses of exported objects around the world. Superb new photography reveals over 200 pieces illustrates the extraordinary range of styles and decorative patterns of Chinese export porcelain, ranging from bowls, pitchers, and vases, to statuary and much more.

Rose Kerr was Former Keeper of the Far Eastern Department at the V&A. Luisa E. Mengoni is a curator and Ming Wilson is a senior curator in the Asian Department at the V&A.
