Chinese porcelain from 1820 through 1920 has, to date, been the province of a few academic authors, dealers and collectors. This book explains the subject for the more average collector. Written with the interests of novice collectors and dealers in mind and well-illustrated in colour, Allen includes suggestions for further reading and learning. He discusses marks, reign marks, footrims, glazes, bubbles, flaws and imperfections, and other indications of a date of manufacture, including the contentious subjects of hollow line and the reversed S; illustrating in close-up images to substantiate his assertions. Includes chapters on many subjects previously treated as taboo such as Modern Fakes and their Detection, Buying Trips in Asia, and Recommendations for Investors. Printed in New Zealand.

Anthony John Allen, (Tony to his friends), has been a collector of Late Qing Chinese porcelain since 1983. Using his oriental antique importing business to provide the means to pursue his primary hobby, “Guangxu (1875-1908) mark and period porcelain,” his hobby in turn provided the impetus to write this book, some nine years in the making. The author has used examples from his extensive collection to support his observations on pointers for dating.
