Straits Chinese Porcelain - A Collector's Guide

£24.99

Product description

Green cloth cover with embossed Chinese emblem on front. Gilt titles on spine. All in very good condition with only slight bumping on edges. End papers decorated with same emblem as front cover. Jacket cover in glossy paper; some scratches and marks and slight wear on spine but otherwise in good condition with no tears.

The term 'Straits Chinese Porcelain' refers specifically to a little known category of nineteenth century, polychrome enamelled export porcelain which was exclusively made for the unique community of Straits-born Chinese. Most extant pieces may, however, be dated between the reign of Tao Kuan (1821-50) and the beginning of the Min Kuo era (1920) or thereabouts. Illustrated with full colour photographs. A must read for anyone with an interest in Chinese Porcelain.
