"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.".
Please note:most of the used books we sell are for reference for the inquiring minds of the antiques collector or dealer. They are not books which are being sold as "collectible" in themselves. They are usually good reading and reference copies only.
