Created principally during the 1970s and 1980s, the porcelain collection formed by Henry and Constance Bowles represents both the fruits of the pursuit of excellence and an exhilarating accommodation of two distinct but perfectly compatible tastes. Botanical and naturalistic themes of Chelsea and Longton Hall, Kakiemon idioms of Bow, and the colored grounds of Worcester, seasoned by the wit and sophistication of Chantilly, reflect a shared passion for porcelain. The 182 entries in this book include color illustrations and discussions of the history and decorative influences for each piece.
