“L'Art de Fabriquer la Porcelaine, suive d'un Vocabulaire des Mots techniques et d'un traite de la Peinture et Dorure sur Porcelaine”

By F. Bastenaire-Daudenart.
Published in Paris by la Librairie Scientifique et Industrielle de Malher et Cie. in 1827.

DISCUSSION:

A study of the manufacture of porcelain, as well as painting and gilding porcelain, as it stood in the first decades of the 19th century, with an extensive glossary. Daudenart was the longtime proprietor and manager of the factory of Saint Amand-les-Eaux, and wrote several books on the techniques of porcelain and pottery manufacture. Solon spends most of his lengthy entry on this title complaining that, although Daudenart was well trained in the almost-obsolete technique of making soft-paste "fritted" body china, he chose to write a book about the manufacture of hard-paste porcelain instead. Sometimes Solon was very difficult to please. Branner.

DESCRIPTION:

2 volumes. Hardcover. 4.25"x7", xviii + 403 + 443 pages, plus 4 folding engraved plates; bound in old boards with new leather spines with red labels and gilt titles.

CONDITION NOTES:

A little internal toning and soil, plate edges a bit soiled and tatty, but overall a nice set.
