Volume I

This is the first volume of the well known standard works on Chinese Armorial porcelain for the British market, between 1695 and 1820. Besides this, an excellent tool for anybody who want to be able to date 18th century Chinese export porcelain in general. It give a good background to how the porcelain that was made specifically on order was made decorated sold and, bought. This book is a masterpiece and an indispensable book for any in the antiques business as well as most any collector of Chinese Export Porcelain.

The illustrations that are mostly in black and white feels today a bit dated but are OK for identifying purposes.

CLASSIC – on export porcelain in general and specifically, on Armorial porcelain for Great Britain
