ISBN: 1878529307


This book is devoted to Hirado porcelain and is the only work devoted exclusively to the subject in English. This much needed volume traces the origins of one of Japan's great porcelain manufacturers from its first years in the 17th century to its closure early in the 20th century. Illustrated with over 100 color plates, almost all of which are published for the first time, it displays the extraordinary range of Hirado wares originally made exclusively for the wealthy Matsura family. Within the appendices of this book is a unique and comprehensive section devoted to over 90 marks found on Hirado wares.

Price: $15.00
