Cover. A “Transition Period” Chinese blue and white porcelain, decorated around the sides with a mandarin beneath a willow tree, an attendant figure, a deer, a lakeside scene and distant mountains. The lid has a dilettante figure. This vase is among those pictured in the definitive book, Chinese Blue & White Porcelain, by Duncan Macintosh, recently published by David & Charles. Chapters of the book appear in this and last month’s issues, in toto, with photographs shown in much smaller sizes than in the book. Courtesy of David & Charles and Duncan Macintosh.
