Title: Parian. Copeland's Statuary Porcelain
Description: Antique Collectors' Club, 2007. 28 cm, 352 pp, with 84 illustrations in colour, 463 in b/w, publisher's cloth and dust jacket. New copy Parian - a high-quality, unglazed porcelain - was developed in the early 1840s by Copeland & Garrett, which was the first company to exhibit it in 1845. Its purpose was to provide small sculptures for the public at a time when full size marble statues were gracing the homes of wealthy people. Parian - Copeland's Statuary Porcelain tells this fascinating story in detail, beginning with its origin and introduction. The book goes on to describe the manufacturing processes of mould-making and the casting of the figures. Also included is a comprehensive catalogue of Copeland's productions of statuettes, groups and portrait busts.
