Fuchs, Ronald W. , II & David S. Howard.
Made in China Export Porcelain from the Leo and Doris Hodroff Collection at Winterthur.

Winterthur / University Press of New England: 2005.

This sumptuous volume accompanies a traveling exhibition of the same name that opened at Winterthur in February, 2005. The full-color volume highlights 117 exquisite export porcelain objects from the Leo and Doris Hodroff Collection at Winterthur. Authors Ron Fuchs and David Howard ground their presentation with an introductory 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 entries are grouped according to function: dining wares, drinking wares, household and personal utensils, and decorative wares. Each grouping is preceded by a short essay that places the objects within a historic context. An illustrated appendix addresses the coats of arms found on many of the objects, and an extensive bibliography offers supplementary readings.

Hardcover. 8.5"x11.5", 212 pages, 280 color illustrations, dj. New.
