Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Guide is the key word here, since the author is not a scholar. She does, however, pull a lot of information together about subjects ranging from classic 17th-century Ming hardwood pieces to Shanghai Art Deco styles of the 1930s, and she carries the exposition right up to the present, with horrible but relevant Western-style examples." —Art & Auction

"Karen Mazurkewich has spent years researching and investigating antiques and manufacturing in Asia. She puts her experience to use in this well-illustrated book." —The Maine Antique Digest

" [Chinese Furniture] shows authentic classics from beds to household accessories, with advice on how pieces were constructed. There is a section on fakes, but identification and knowing authentic ancient to modern looks is the point of this book." —The Smart Collector
