Book Description

First Edition Signed by David Howard 1034 pages with black-and-white illustrations; a few in colour.; The major part of David Howard's book consists of a dictionary of armorial services painted in China for the British market between 1695 and 1820. Pieces of nearly 2,000 services are illustrated by styles chronologically, the arms blazoned and the families described; and in all 2,900 services are recorded. Perhaps the greatest value of this book to the collector lies in its extensive analyses of this ware.
