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

Front cover slightly faded on top.; Chinese porcelain of the period 1820 through 1920, to date has been the province of a minority of academic authors and a few adventurous dealers and collectors. This misunderstood but fascinating field of study is now brought within the reach of the average collector. Written with interests of novice collectors and dealers in mind, superbly illustrated in colour throughout, each of the introductory chapters conclude with suggestions for further reading, thus providing a fast but solid grounding for the primary focus of the book: dating of later Chinese porcelains. This book discusses marks, reign marks, footrims, glazes, bubbles, flaws and imperfections and other indications of a date of manufacture, including the contentious subjects of… Read More

The objects discussed form part of the Benaki Museum collection of Chinese art, in its majority donated by Eumorfopoulos between 1929 and 1936; this collection is a rare 'time capsule' of the taste and preoccupations of the pre-World War II period with regards to China. The years between the collapse of the Qing dynasty in 1911… Read More
