Meissen Porcelain Identification And Value Guide

Meissen porcelain is eagerly collected throughout the world and traded vigorously at antique shows, auctions, and on the Internet. Of the few books available on this beautiful German porcelain, none includes current market values - but Jim and Susan Harran's new Meissen Porcelain does! The authors of the bestselling three-volume series, Collectible Cups & Saucers, and another volume, Dresden Porcelain Studios, have produced a book that features everyday items available in the marketplace, not the eighteenth century museum pieces found in many Meissen books. The majority of pieces featured date from the mid-nineteenth century through the 1950s. More than 625 color photographs are included, along with a helpful marks section. Meissen Porcelain provides historical information about the beautiful city of Meissen and a brief history of the Meissen manufactory itself, as well as discussions on decorating motifs and how Meissen porcelain is made. The book includes chapters on decorative porcelain, flower painting, Oriental motifs, Meissen's famous Blue Onion pattern, figures, copycats, and useful information for the collector.

For any collector of Meissen, this is a must have book.Wonderful collection of photos and above all the various Meissen markings through the years makes this a must have volume for any serious collector of Meissen Porcelain.A great buy.

This book is very applicable for the dealers of the porcelain especially for Meissen porcelain.This book describes the products of Meissen in general only.For the practicians or the collectors there is recommended another kind of the book.The prices aren't too reals,it depend of the market demand.For the specification correct I recommend to look for the book "Meissen figuren",where you can find completely whole production of the figures(I hope that's truth)

love this book very informative it would be nice if it was on dvd for viewing it has a lot of info
