Reference Book: Imari: Japanese Porcelain
An excellent pictorial reference book specializing entirely in Japanese Imari wares. The pieces span the gamut from the earliest Imari wares of the late 17th century, all the way through the Meiji Period Imari wares of the late 19th century. There are over 100 high quality color photos. In our candid opinion, it's not enough of a reason to purchase an antique merely for the sake of a free book, but any client already seriously contemplating a purchase can enjoy this as a free extra.

Many collectors, especially beginners, do not make enough effort to acquire good reference books, and are tempted to spend on pieces before they have really learned enough to purchase responsibly and protect themselves. But there is really no better way to educate one's eye than studying the pieces of established collections in published books. However you acquire them, we encourage collectors to amass a good reference library which over time, is essential to building a solid collection and avoiding costly mistakes.
