Over 3500 items of popular Chinese and Japanese antiques—such as blue-and-white ginger jars, richly carved lacquer boxes, and jade jewelry—receive illustrated, detailed, and up-to-date coverage in this excellent entry in the popular Miller’s Buyer’s Guide series. It’s first divided by type of ware (such as furniture and ceramics) and then subdivided by country for ease of reference. Each section contains practical guidance on collecting, what to be aware of when starting out, how to spot fakes, and ways to avoid making expensive mistakes.
