Book Description Sotheby's U.K., 1997. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Included. English text.; Hardcover (with dust jacket); 21.5 x 28 cm; 1.167 Kg; 272 pages with colour illustrations throughout.; Used with minor signs of wear on the dust jacket, except for the spine that is slightly faded. Interior as new.; Exhibition catalogue, which displayed chinese porcelain, cloisonné enamels, blanc de chine, famille verte, armorial porcelain, clay figures, textiles, furniture, lacquer, paintings, prints, silver, fans and snuff bottles pieces.; "The exhibition will trace and celebrate the historic trade in the decorative arts between Great Britain and the Far East, but in particular the three great cities of Hong Kong, Shanghai and Canton. This catalogue, a unique book of reference in its own right, is testament to the stunning collection of objects, some of them never before seen in a public exhibition, that has been brought together to tell the Tale of Three Cities." excerpt from the foreword by Henry Wyndham, Chairman, Sotheby's U.K.; "This exhibition offers an historical summary of one of the great, and at the time most unusual, trade partnerships in the history of commerce, and at the same time suggests a path forward in the more complex world of today. Not for the first time it is the decorative arts which provide the principal way of painting a panorama of the events of the past. That they comprised only between 5% and 10% of the whole trade with China throughout that time is less important than the fact that they remain to tell their story." excerpt from the introduction by David Howard.
