The blue and white porcelain exported by China in the 18th and early 19th centuries is an important, fashion-sensitive category of artifacts and antiques. In this copiously illustrated, comprehensive guide to Chinese export porcelain, Madsen and White offer both a broad overview and detailed identification and context information for the most common styles and motifs.
Their focus on the determination of manufacture dates, which are based primarily on data collected from armorial decorated export wares, porcelain cargoes from dated shipwrecks, and tightly dated archaeological contexts, will allow students, scholars, and collectors to refine associations with Chinese export porcelain, revealing the untapped quantity of information that mass-produced Chinese export porcelain has to offer.
