Listing Detail Tabs

Carved and scented boxwood fans, laquered boxes with gold and silver inlay, porcelain vases wrapped in finely woven bamboo, glistening silver earrings in the shape of fish, gold brocade children’s shoes, painted clay animals representing the signs of the Zodiac – these and many more examples of China’s vibrant craft traditions have been specially photographed in colour for this book, and are discussed with great authority after extensive original research in China.

There are 183 illustrations, 147 in colour.

Achievements in all the main media – textiles, jewellery, laquer, ceramics, bamboo, wood and paper – are examined, the historical background simply defined and advice on collecting succinctly given.

The cover picture used on TM does not do justice to the excellent pictures in this volume.

Softback, in as-new condition, approx 20cm x 21cm, 128 gloss pages inc index.
