Table of Contents

This is a premium oversized book, suitable for coffee table display or for the serious collector/ dealer wishing for in depth research & photos.

The popularity of Japanese ceramics in the West caused a vast and delightful variety of wares to be made for export. Colorful Imari porcelain in deep blue, orange-red, and gold, Fukagawa porcelain in imaginative designs, as well as the softly colored Satsuma earthenwares, are the best known of the old Japanese exports, shown here in hundreds of variations by skilled decorators. Also presented are the exotic Sumida and Banko wares, relative newcomers to the field whose popularity has grown steadily over the last ten years. Makers' and decorators' marks, unusual shapes, design variations, and hard-to-find examples are all shown in 600 color photographs with identifying captions and concise text."
