This full-color volume highlights 117 exquisite export porcelain objects from the extensive Leo and Doris Hodroff Collection at Winterthur. The authors ground their presentation with an overview of the manufacture of porcelain, the history of the China Trade, and the importance of export porcelain in European and American history and material culture. Individual catalogue entries are grouped according to function: dining wares, drinking wares, household and personal utensils, and decorative wares. Each group is preceded by a short essay that places the objects within an historical context. An illustrated appendix addresses the coats of arms found on many of the objects, and an extensive bibliography offers supplementary readings.
