About the Author

Laurence Mitchell, antique dealer in European and Oriental Porcelain and works of art, specialising in Meissen, particularly the nineteenth century. During the latter part of the 1980s he was able to purchase the second edition of the very rare catalogue used by the Meissen salesmen to show off their wares. Realising the potential of this book, which illustrated over 1700 images of models as they looked when reproduced in the second half of the nineteenth century, he sought to create a chronological history of as many models as possible in the catalogue. Today his interests are buying and selling antiques at his shop in Camden Passage and creating a comprehensive website for the Meissen enthusiast. He is also consultant to the insurance industry for antique valuations and restoration.

Format: Hardcover
I agree with another reviewer and was disappointed by the book. There is very little information about marks, periods, maker's marks (no pictures at all) and ninety percent of the photos of Meissen ware are in black and white and are not of the best quality. It definitely isn't a collector's catalogue as most of the pieces are unavailable to the public (unless they have a lot of money). As a new collector it did not help me at all. There is a book by Jim and Susan Harran called "Meissen Porcelain Identification and Value Guide" which has amazing photos and gives far greater detail on the products, the background, the marks (and forgery's) of this fascinating maker of porcelain.
