Shiwan Ceramics: Beauty, Color, and Passion | Fredrikke S. Scollard and Terese Tse Bartholomew | ISBN: 0-9609784-0-2 | Paperback | 1994

From historical records we know that Shiwan, now a part of the city of Foshan, has been exporting pottery in large quantities to all parts of Southeast Asia since the Song dynasty. Literature on Shiwan is scarce. In recent years, however, there has been an increasing interest in the study of Shiwan pottery, especially in Hong Kong because of its close ties to Guangzhou and its proximity to the kiln sites.

San Francisco has the oldest Chinese community in the United States and the majority of these Chinese are of Cantonese origin. This book sites collectors and collections with great detail in English and Chinese. There as sections to aid the collector and researcher in dating Shiwan Pottery and Styles of artists.
