This deluxe, high quality, hard-bound reference book shows hundreds of
examples, including many pieces made using techniques never before documented
in print. Each work is individually depicted in clear color photographs and
thoroughly described. Rarities and other unusual pieces are accompanied by
additional detailed images with commentary regarding the work’s uniqueness and
key attributes. What sets it apart from other reference works on the subject
are the commentaries of the key attributes. This book illustrates key
innovations, techniques, styles and variations of Japanese cloisonné.
The author has specialized in collecting Japanese cloisonné enamels for over
thirty years, specifically focusing on examples employing unusual techniques
and variations. The book depicts part of his personal collection, which
captures the astonishingly wide diversity of this art form. While many of the
works might appear to be “one-of-a-kind” treasures, the author reminds us that
many of these rare and wonderful examples are waiting to be discovered!
A large percentage of the items that illustrate this book are marked or
artist-signed. The author has provided detailed explanations and translations
of the various artists marks. In Chapter 18, there are 286 artist marks,
signatures and trademarks depicted in this book. Unless you have a guide that
can help decipher and translate these often confusing marks and symbols, you
may be missing out on a BIG opportunity!
Whether you are an advanced collector or are a seasoned dealer, connoisseur,
auction house or professional appraiser, you will find this lavishly
photographed reference catalog valuable and indispensable.
