Never before has there been a book focusing on the theme of tea as it relates to both the fine and decorative arts. With over 330 beautiful color images, this book explores the history of tea with special attention to the impact its popularity has had on the development of porcelain, furniture, silver, and the other decorative objects employed in serving tea. Here are teapots, cups and saucers, kettle stands, tea caddies, silverware, and more, inspired both by the expense of the tea itself and the various social significances surrounding its consumption.
The valued place of tea in society at all levels has also created a subject for the fine arts. From maritime paintings, to portraiture and still lifes, artists have captured the romance of tea through the works shown in this book.
Images from top dealers, galleries, and collectors, representing some of the highest quality tea ware created, illustrate the fascinating and well researched text to please readers around the world.
