goodreads Chinese Carved Lacquer

The Chinese first began to work with lacquer at least as early as the second millennium BC and fine pieces soon became highly-prized objects in the collections of Chinese connoisseurs. The art of lacquer has continued and developed in China up to the present day, and has attracted increasing attention from collectors and scholars in the West. This book concentrates on the often spectacular varieties of carved lacquer work, and deals with this subject in greater detail than has previously been possible. It provides the reader with a book which will remain a standard reference for years to come -- an essential tool for collectors, connoisseurs and enthusiasts
