China Trade Porcelain

An Account of Its Historical Background, Manufacture, and Decoration and a Study of the Helena Woolworth McCann Collection

John Goldsmith Phillips

21 pages with preface by Joseph V. McMullan, Robert L. Larner and Constance W. MacMullan (The Porcelain Committee of the Winfield Foundation), list of distribution of porcelains from the McCann Collection, contents, list of figures, list of plates and introduction

The Helena Woolworth McCann collection of China-Trade porcelain is a lasting tribute to the knowledge and judgment of the collector whose name it bears. The collection consists of about 4,000 pieces, including a number of large tea and dinner services, made in China to the order of European and American clients during the seventeenth, eighteen, and nineteenth centuries. Assembling such a comprehensive and distinguished group not only called for rare insight and informed taste, but required extensive travel and search in Europe.
