Description - Meissen's Blue and White Porcelain by Nicholas Zumbulyadis

Over 360 stunning color photos display exquisite blue and white decorated dining services, candelabrums, tea and coffee services, centerpieces, vases, and more, created by Germany's famous Meissen porcelain manufactory. Ranging from rare, early eighteenth century museum pieces to nineteenth century plates and platters readily obtainable by collectors, they feature decorations in royal blue, underglaze and overglaze colors, and patterns including Rock and Bird, Strawflower, and the ever-popular Blue Onion. Many have never before been seen in print in an English language publication! The fascinating text includes a history of porcelain painting, a discussion of Meissen's artists, the wares produced, decorative techniques incorporated over two centuries, and an examination of Meissen's manufacturer's marks, a bibliography, and an index. Values may be found in the captions. This book is essential for everyone who appreciates fine porcelain.
