5.0 out of 5 stars PURE PORCELAIN PLEASURE! 3 Jan 2006
By Diane C. Lytwyn - Published on Amazon.com
As a collector of fine antique porcelains, I was eager to own this book, and delighted when it was finally delivered! The artistry of painting on porcelains has been presented before in other publications, but "Hand Painted Porcelain Plates: Nineteenth Century to the Present" provides a new benchmark in terms of both text information and illustration.

With superb photographic technique, each image captures the magnificent color, form and art and the captions describing the age, area of origin and artist are very well done.

The plate chapters are arranged by country. German, Austrian and Bohemian plates include a history of manufacture, and makers like Richard Klemm, Ambrosius Lamm and other notable producers of Dresden porcelain, as well as portrait specimens produced by KPM and the artists of Vienna are included in this important chapter.

World class English porcelains are well-represented, with stunning and rare Worcester examples, as well as outstanding painted plates from Coalport, Davenport, Minton and Wedgwood. I enjoyed the recognition afforded to the venerable firm of John Aynsley, and the painted scenic view plates are generally missed by other publications on antique and collectible porcelains.

Many French porcelain makers set the decorating standard for others, and the chapter devoted to the makers from France, including Limoges and Sevres, are alone, well worth the price of the book!

With important information on marks, as well as fake and reproduction plates, Richard Rendall presents a clear and comprehensive text, and the examples from Elise Abram's collection are clearly representative of the most luxurious porcelain on the planet!

Recommended to both new and advanced collectors, you will not be dissappointed! This book is truly a feast for the eyes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the price !! 22 Dec 2013

EXTREMELY HIGH QUALITY TABLETOP BOOK !! I had the pleasure of speaking with on of the antique porcelain collectors that created this book a few years ago, and his passion for fine quality European porcelains was exactly what I was looking for to further enhance my love for fine European porcelains. He recommended this to me and a few years later, I have FINALLY been able to purchase it. The pictures are beautifully photographed and placed within concise descriptions and history of where they were made, hand painted and which high end companies in the U.S. imported them to make them available for our pleasure.

The pages are of a fine quality of paper, that as soon as you turn the first page, it is like turning pack the pages of history. You can immediately tell that this book is a "reverently" made work of art in itself.

Anyone the appreciates fine books, even if they are not in love with antique porcelain, will come away with a sense of knowledge they never expected and a clear and concise sense of the true beautify of original pieces created by the most talented artists in the world !!
