Description:
Umprum, Academy of Arts and, Architecture & Design in Prague, 2015 Book. New. Hardcover. 1st Edition. English text; Hardcover (cloth with dust jacket); 25.3 x 31.9 cm; 3.1 kg; 510 pages with colour illustrations, decorative endpapers. Includes ribbon bookmark.; STILL WRAPPED IN PLASTIC.; Chinese porcelain ware is contained in many major art collections worldwide. The Czech Republic also has interesting collections, which, however, have not previously been very well known to the wider public. The boom in the trade of Chinese porcelain is linked to the discovery of the trade routes to China in the 16th century. Porcelain then became a popular artistic item that adorned the residences of the richest aristocrats in other European countries, as well as in our country during the reign of Emperor Rudolf II. Chinese porcelain can be found in a number of Czech castle and palace collections. The largest of these are mainly gathered in the former Waldstein, Schwarzenberg and Lichnowsky dominions.

Allen's Enterprises Ltd, New Zealand, 2000 Book. Near Fine. Hardcover. 1st Edition. English text; Hardcover (with dust jacket); 22 x 31 cm; 1,5 Kg; 264 pages with colour illustrations throughout.; Used with minor signs of wear. Interior as new.; Allen's Authentication of Later Chinese Porcelain continues on from the earlier Allen's Introduction to Later Chinese Porcelain, in a more detailed examination of aspects of dating; providing even the novice collector or dealer with information, dating techniques and illustrations, which would otherwise take yours to learn. The focus of the work is primarily on the dating of porcelain made between the beginning of the Jiaqing reign in 1796AD, and ending in the penultimate year of the 20th century, 1999. As many of the porcelains made in this 200 year period were copies of earlier periods, there are also a number of illustrations of genuine porcelain and pottery pieces made in the late Ming and earlier Qing dynasties, i.e., prior to 1796AD.… Read More

Minor signs of wear on the dust jacket which is now protected with a clearcover.; No other civilisation in the pre-modern world was more obsessed with creating underground burial structures than the Chinese. For at least five thousand years, from the fourth millennium BCE to the early twentieth century, Chinese people devoted an extraordinary amount of wealth and labour to building tombs and furnishing them with exquisite objects and images. In art history these ancient burial sites have mainly been appreciated as "treasures troves" of exciting and often previously unknown works of art. New trends in Chinese art history are challenging this way of studying funerary art: now an entire memorial site - rather than any of its individual components - has become the focus of… Read More

English text; Hardcover; 240 pages, 197 colour illustrations, 7 black and white illustrations; 23.5 x 29.7 cm; 1,8 kg; May show signs of shelf wear.; Exhibition catalogue; Famille verte biscuit wares are an important but so far little-studied group of refined Chinese porcelain made at the imperial kilns of Jingdezhen primarily during the Kangxi period (1662-1722). This group is defined by both the method of decoration and the colour palette, which is frequently dominated by green enamel. Presenting an extremely diverse range of shapes, including figurines and animals, small practical items for use within the Chinese domestic environment and religious icons, this group is as complicated as it is fascinating. Together they open a window on Chinese culture and society, through which the production and consumption of Chinese ceramics can also be studied. Famille verte biscuit wares became increasingly fashionable for the European market at this… Read More

This most beautiful of porcelains, satisfying entirely by form and glaze, so elusive to date, enjoys wide appeal. But collectors and others interested have up to now had to rest content with a page or so of general praise and description in the standard works on Chinese ceramics, for there has been no complete book on this subject. This deficiency is now made good. The author, with the advantage of an unrivalled collection of the ware itself, has devoted years of research into sources, Chinese and… Read More
