Japanese Imari porcelain, with its vivid red, blue and gold palette, reached Europe in the late seventeenth century and created a sensation among collectors accustomd to the more austere palette of blue-and-white Chinese wares. Soon Imari chargers and full garnitures graced the palaces and great houses of Europe and formed significant portions of the massive collections of Asian porcelains formed by many kings and princes. When high prices and increased competition from China caused imports of Imari to slow in the mid-eignteenth century, Imari continues to exert a strong influence on both the design and palette used to create porcelains at the newly established porcelain factories both in England and on the Continent.--pg. 6.

Selected by Choice magazine as an Outstanding Academic Book for 2000 The history of ceramics is extraordinarily diverse, ranging from crude clay utensils to highly decorative pieces of immense beauty and craftsmanship. Robin Hildyard draws on the Victoria & Albert Museum's extensive collection to trace the story of European ceramics, in its rich diversity from the end of the Middle Ages to the present day. Highlighting key developments, techniques, discoveries, and styles--from earthenware, stoneware, and tin glaze to the invention of porcelain and the impact of industrialization--the narrative is interspersed with thematic spreads that explore the techniques and astonishing capabilities of this most universal of materials. Events such as the Great Exhibition and its successors sought to resolve the conflict between mass production and good design, illustrated here by a wide range of pieces. Looking at the complicated twentieth-century relationship among designer, manufacturer, and artist, the book also explores the modernism of the Bauhaus style, the opposing influence of Art Deco, and the explosion of new design following the Second World War. Including works made as recently as 1998, and featuring specially commissioned photography supported by related engravings and pattern-books, European Ceramics is not only an authoritative and indispensable reference work for students and collectors but a wide-ranging and richly illustrated volume--over two hundred illustrations, the majority in color--for all decorative art lovers to treasure.

For a good two hundred years the Tower Room on the piano nobile of the Dresden Residence served as a unique showroom for the electoral-royal porcelain collection. Here, alongside vases from China and Japan, King August III presented the finest products of his manufactory at Meissen, on gilded consoles against red-lacquered wall panels. In the bombing of Dresden in February 1945 the royal palace was almost entirely consumed by fire; as for the porcelain pieces, despite having been evacuated in 1943, the majority of them fell prey to plundering and destruction. Now that the porcelain cabinet has been reconstructed, some of the extant pieces - notably the spectacular 'Elements' garniture modelled by Johann Joachim Kaendler and two 'Dragoons' vases - can be displayed again. Additionally, ten silver gueridons serve as a reminder of the room's earlier function as a 'Silver Buffet'. This book traces the history of the cabinet from its origins in the 1730s to its destruction in 1945. It includes a comprehensive Catalogue section in which the losses from the Tower Room's holdings are presented on the basis of the documentation of the porcelain collection undertaken in 1941.
