SPECIAL OFFER: The reference book has been discounted from the retail price of $149. and the accompanying 'Price List' regularly $ 59. will also be included if you order now! The internationally acclaimed reference book on the subject. It is destined to become one of your most favorite and valued reference guides. The deluxe, hard bound book is a groundbreaking visual survey for any advanced collector, dealer, museum curator, or institutional specialist in Japanese art. NO OTHER REFERENCE BOOK COMES CLOSE! The reference book shows hundreds of examples, including many pieces made using techniques never before documented in print. Each work is individually depicted in clear color photographs and thoroughly described. Rarities and other unusual pieces are accompanied by additional detailed images with commentary regarding the work's uniqueness and key attributes. The author has specialized in collecting Japanese cloisonné enamels for nearly thirty years, specifically focusing on examples employing unusual techniques and variations. While many of the works might appear to be 'one-of-a-kind' treasures, the author reminds us that many of these rare and wonderful examples are waiting to be discovered! A large percentage of the items that illustrate this book are marked or artist-signed. The author has provided detailed explanations and translations of the various artists marks - which has been an obvious void in the existing literature. Of the 286 images of artist marks, signatures and trademarks depicted in this book, most have never been adequately discussed, translated, or photographically documented in any previously-published works on the subject. No other published work available today provides a comparable scope and level of detail that advanced collectors, dealers, professional trade need. Advanced collectors, seasoned dealers, and professional/trade will find this lavishly photographed reference catalog valuable and indispensable.
