The Connoisseur Illustrated Guides
A compact but remarkably comprehensive survey of ceramic wares, from the early Chinese examples to the work of the English potters and designers of this century. Hundreds of drawings and eight pages of color photographs. THE CONNOISSEUR ILLUSTRATED GUIDES are designed to help collectors overcome the basic problems of how to identify an object within its likely period and style, and to make a reasonable judgment on its comparative quality. Therefore the types of objects illustrated range from those that are commonly available, to those that can be seen in a museum or house open to the public.--Amazon.com.
