5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating account of this beautiful chinese metal, 3 Aug 2001
This review is from: Paktong: The Chinese Alloy in Europe, 1680-1820 (Hardcover)
Keith Pinn's work is a must read for anyone even remotely interested in antiques and their place in history. A fascinating book that reads as well as a historical mystery as a piece of scholarship, the book is a 'quest fo Paktong' the rare alloy pioneered by the Chinese that baffled the west for centuries. Written in Keith's lively and stimulating style the story fairly leaps of the page. I couldn't put it down.
