The English translation of the Spanish edition Chinese armorial porcelain for Spain was published in 2010 by Jorge Welsh Books (London/Lisbon), who edited fifteen catalogues and three books on Chinese and oriental porcelain and ceramics since 1999. Chinese armorial porcelain for Spain is the first book on armorial porcelain made in China specifically for the Spanish market. It includes important new documentation and information unearthed after years of methodical research by the author. From the 16th century onwards, Spanish traders imported large quantities of Chinese porcelain to Spain and New Spain. Much of these wares were armorial porcelain intended for Spanish Royal and aristocratic patrons. This publication examines and discusses seventy-three different Chinese export porcelain pieces or dinner services made for the Spanish market and provides interesting information on the historical, political and sociological world at the time including insights into the individuals that ordered these objects from China.
