Author: Lebel, A.

Title: Armoiries françaises et suisses sur la porcelaine de Chine au XVIIIe siècle. French and Swiss armorials on Chinese export porcelain of the 18th century.


This book, presented in a bilingual edition, French and English, presents over 260 French families, among which ten settled in Switzerland. Each entry, accompanied by a photo of an example of an armorial piece and a detail of the arms, gives as much information as possible on the social position and the life of the owner of the service. This research work enables also the reader to be better acquainted with the first actors of the trade between the West and the Far-East, and their place in French 18th Century society.
