Review Quotes
Art Newspaper
"A beautifully illustrated catalogue. . . . The astonishing achievement on the part of the workers, potters and porcelain decorators who made them is visible on all the pages of this book. . . . What makes this book so special is not just that it reveals, and makes available for all of our enjoyment, this collection, but that it features the contributions of so many: the collectors themselves, the author, Teresa Canepa, whose expertise graces every page, the ceramics specialist Rose Kerr, the photographer Larry Hamill, the book’s designer Welmoet Wartena and the publisher, Paul Holberton. Together, they have produced a splendid volume that deserves to be enjoyed widely."
World of Interiors
"How one city in the middle of China dominated the inter-national trade in ‘white gold’. The au-thor has analysed shards found at 14 excavated kilns to date items in the 170 piece-strong collection, which includes frog-shaped incense containers and eight-lobed saucer dishes. Interspersed are 17th-century still lifes showing the wares in context, and the book introduces us to extremely rare examples of armorial kraak, made mainly for the Portuguese market."
Orientations Magazine
"This is a highly recommended book and an invaluable resource for scholars, curators, dealers and indeed anyone working with, teaching, researching or merely interested in the history of late Ming Jingdezhen blue-and-white porcelain, and it is likely to remain so for years, if not decades, to come."
