Collector Bookstore Notes

This ID guide features porcelain boxes, including dresser jewelry boxes, snuff, beauty, needlework, medicine, and writing boxes. Includes prices.

Publishers Description:

Boxes have existed from the time the first person decided to protect his precious belongings and have been made in many different materials. Some of the most desirable were boxes made of porcelain, and artists made them in all shapes and sizes and painted them with great care.

This book features hundreds of these beautiful porcelain boxes which are showcased in over 600 color photographs. Historical information on early snuff, beauty, needlework, medicine, and writing boxes is discussed. The technique of making boxes is explained, and photographs illustrate a number of decorative techniques. Organized by country or geographic area, the book covers French boxes, which are probably some of the worlds finest. Also included are boxes made in Germany, other European countries, England, and Asia. There is also a chapter on contemporary Limoges boxes. Useful information to help the collector and a marks section is included. It's all in Antique Porcelain Boxes.
