"Because it had to travel to Europe, Chinese Export Porcelain was known as Vases of the sea, for it included vases of all shapes and sizes among its cargo. But vases, dishes, plates, etc. are inclined to confuse the amateur collector, especially when reign-marks are unreliable. Therefore, to aid the collector by describing the different types of decoration, both Chinese and Japanese, is one principal aims of the book.".
