$45.00

Down the centuries Chinese craftsmen have worked with clay, wood, bamboo, stone and even gourd to bring humble utilitarian objects to the level of art. The appeal of these objects to the collectors-whether birdcage or basket, box, or brush pot, plate or bowl, transcends simple nostalgia - lying as it does in their intrinsic beauty as much as in the facts the, transmitted from father to son, the skills with which they have been o finely wrought are in danger of perishing. This lavish collection of photographs, richer and more eclectic in examples than any single book before and celebrates the art of the Chinese craftsman.

Excellent hardcover, Like New condition.
