Collectible Cups & Saucers Book IV
Like the Harrans' previous books, Book IV is divided into several collectible categories: cabinet cups and saucers, American cups and saucers, European dinnerware services, English tablewares, miniatures, and more. The almost 1,400 all-new photographs feature all kinds of beautiful cups and saucers and their marks. There is a new section, the Collectors Corner, which offers insights and experiences from fellow collectors. A fascinating new chapter entitled Chinese Tea and Tea Serving Vessels, written by collectors from Toronto, Canada, Henry Yuen and his son Andy, includes rare teacups from as early as the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD) and continues to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911 AD). The chapter includes interesting historical information, beautiful examples from Yuen's personal collection, and a dynasty timeline. Useful information on packaging, internet buying, condition, and availability is also provided in the book. It s another must-have for collectors.
