From the publishers notes (edited): “Volume contains scholarly notes, index, and bibliography. , This book traces the history of Meissen porcelain from its beginning through the 20th century. Special attention is given to the 19th and 20th century products, neglected in most books about Meissen. In thirteen chapters the book describes all facets of the Meissen manufactory: The present state of the manufactory and its latest creations, Bottger s first ceramic invention, the red stoneware and its re-discovery in the 20th century, sculptural Meissen art, the different shapes and forms of tableware, Meissen painting and decorations, and often-neglected little things the manufactory made like medals and coins, lithopanes, tiles, knick-knacks and technical porcelain." Also shows Meissen style marks and their makers. 333 pp. This is an over sized and especially heavy volume.
