Catalogue of the Avery Collection of Ancient Chinese Coloisonnes (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Catalogue of the Avery Collection of Ancient Chinese Coloisonnés Again, we find, both in porcelain and in cloisonné, that same general point of view which recognizes the Ming period as the greatest, and its pieces as being the rarest and the most important; while the K'ang-hsi era is only a grade less important, when pieces of the very highest qual ity are compared, and often in other cases quite equal to the Ming. In cloisonnés, as in porcelains, the Ch'ien-lung era, which is the last of the great historic periods, is distinguished for technical excellence of execu tion, but its best pieces are those which approach most nearly to the color schemes and low-toned harmonies of the older dates (and this they appear to do more often in cloisonné than in porcelain) About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
