A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. 164 pages. Illustrated throughout. This volume provides the first comprehensive survey of Art Nouveau porcelain of the Meissen Manufactory: it reveals a number of extensive and largely unknown interrelationships with contemporary artists like Riemerschmid, Van de Velde and others. The three primary areas of artistic production at the turn of the century are subject to detailed scrutiny: decorative and household porcelain and porcelain figures. This is done by analysing the structure of the firm, the relationship between tradition and innovation, the role of international competition and the results of collaboration with freelance artists.
