Antique China and Ceramics

Most historians attribute the first fine porcelains to China; hence the name, but other continents and countries developed their own particular expressions of this ancient craft, producing Antique China and Antique Ceramics of their own. The embellishments of faience earthenware contrast starkly with the elegance of fine Parisian porcelains such as those produced in Sevres, yet each example has its unique qualities and strong advocates. With Antique Ceramics, Antique Earthenware and Antique China, you can add color and dimension to your decorating with a unique flair and form of expression. Some examples can be quite rare due to the inherent fragility of the medium, so well-preserved specimens are to be treasured. Antique China and Antique Ceramics are sublimely collectible!  Inessa Stewart’s Antiques Wholesale Antique Furniture Stores!  OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
