The Choice of the Private Trader: The Private Market in Chinese Export Porcelain illustrated from the Hodroff Collection

This volume catalogues the Hodroff Collection--one of the most important and influential collections of Chinese Export porcelain in the world. Written by the late David Howard, the world's foremost authority on the subject, the book explores how the private trader and businessman influenced the taste of the entire world trade in Chinese Export porcelain. The porcelain in the book is divided into six groups--dinner services, tea and coffee sets, drinking vessels, personal and everyday utensils, decorative vases, and human and animal figures. New research into the records of the East India Company, and into the evidence produced by recently discovered wrecks, makes this a resource full of new and updated information. As new. Hardcover with dust jacket. 298 pages, more than 350 color illustrations and photographs.
