Catalogue of an excellent and much-enjoyed loan exhibition held at Stockspring Antiques. The ceramic tea canister illuminates a fascinating period of change in European history and this exhibition shows the origin of early ceramic tea canister forms, the cross-fertilisation between production in the East and West and their development as tea drinking took hold in the West. The many and varied tea canisters are of both Chinese export and western manufacture and are illustrated chronologically by form. With introductions on the history of tea drinking and the ceramic tea canister. The canisters well-illustrated in colour. Recommended.
