Table of Contents

Ceramics, made in Japan for export in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, are fascinating collectibles, possessing an almost endless variety of shape and diversity of decoration. In fact, it is rare to fine two pieces matching. Famous Satsuma, Imari, Hirado, Kutani, and other ceramic styles are explored in this new study. Important decorators are identified and their unusually fine craftsmanship is displayed in detail in over 400 color photographs. Their work may be among the finest quality ornamentation on ceramics anywhere in the world, and they are surprisingly affordable. From tea vessels to flower vases and table ornaments, these ceramic masterpieces provide beautiful interior design accents and historical connections between Asian and Western cultures.
