About this Item

English text; Hardcover (with dust jacket); 21.3 x 28.8 cm; 0.858 Kg; 152 pages with mostly black-and-white but also some colour illustrations.; Dust jacket wrapped in a permanent adhesive book cover.; Signs of wear in the cover, spine and back cover of the dust jacket. Small tear on top of the dust jacket spine. No writing or highlighting in text.; It was in the early fourteenth century that the Chinese began to decorate wares of pure high-fired porcelain with paintings in brilliantly coloured cobalt blue. Ever since that time this decorative genre, known in the West today as 'Blue and White', has delighted connoisseurs from West and East alike. The author traces the history of Chinese Blue and White up to the present day, and pays attention to the impact that the export trade had in Europe, North America and Southeast Asia. The twists and turns in the development of Blue and White are described against the backcloth of events in China and elsewhere, and the personalities of the various Emperors who commanded the production of new Blue and White wares. He covers very fully the problems that students new to the field may experience, and in special appendices describes the actual manufacture of Blue and White and the significance and symbolic meaning of many of the designs with which it has been decorated.
