Spring Books, Middlesex, 1967 Book. Good. Hardcover. English text; Hardcover (with dust jacket); 25.7 x 19 cm; 0.600 Kg; 152 pages with black-and-white illustrations; Used book with signs of wear, namely some yellowing on the outside text block and on the front and rear free endpaper. Minor signs of wear in the interior. The dust jacket is now protected with a clearcover.; Chinese fine arts found a "sellers market" in eighteenth-century Europe. Fashionable caprice demanded that the great houses of the day should boast, if not a Chinese Room, then at least a collection of Chinese porcelains, lacquer goods, ivories, silks, and wall papers. This fascinating book gives a detailed and very well documented account of the China trade, in which Britain and the merchants of her East India Company eclipsed all other European nations. The authors, both expert authorities on antiques and ceramics, discuss changing European tastes in Chinese goods and show how the Chinese production of goods especially… Read More

Perhaps, it may not even be possible to think about Portuguese history without including the ocean and the Orient. The Porcelain Route exhibition, which the Fundacao Oriente is proud to display and is only possible due to the pieces kindly lent by institutions and collectors, bears witness to the Portuguese presence in the Orient and expresses praise of the oceans that made possible Portugal's dialogue with the world." excerpt from the presentation by Carlos Augusto Pulido Valente… Read More

Hall, I began my series of papers in the Art Journal upon the various famous earthenware and porcelain works of the kingdom, but little had been done in that direction, and the information I got together from time to time had to be produced from original sources, by prolonged visits to the places themselves and by numberless applications to all sorts of people from whom even scraps of reliable matter coould be obtained. Books on the subject were not many, and the information they contained on English Ceramics was meagre in the extreme. Since then numerous workers have sprung up, and their published volumes - many of them sumptuous and truly valuable works - attest strongly to the interests and pains… Read More

English text; Paperback; 24.3 x 24.5 cm; 0.791 Kg; 144 pages with 160 colour illustrations.; STILL WRAPPED IN PLASTIC: This book examines the 'new orientation of ideas' on Chinese material culture in early 20th century London under the influence of a circle of enthusiasts and scholars, preeminent among which was George Eumorfopoulos (1863-1939), a Greek origin London businessman and collector. These ideas are placed within the context of earlier encounters between China and the West through trade and diplomacy as they unravelled between the 16th century and the late 19th century. 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

The dust jacket is now protected with a clearcover.; At the crest of the long commerce between China and the West in the mid-to late eighteenth century, Chinese porcelain was eagerly acquired by Western rulers, statesmen, leading families, and others alert for the novel. Its primary appeal was that it could be designed to order, and when it came off the trade ships a season or two later, many of the pieces - sometimes entire dinner sets - were decorated with family armorials, images still topical, or designs more or less freely reproduced from drawings or engravings sent to China the year before. Recent interest in China trade porcelain has brought to light significant new examples of this ware. The present study deals with… Read More
