Vietnam Vintage : Antiques from Southeast Asia, 1900-1950 Paperback / softback
During the early twentieth century, Vietnam was a cosmopolitan country, influenced not only by its Chinese and Khmer neighbors, but also by the French and other Europeans.
This fascinating book is among the first in English to document the output of Vietnamese craftspeople and manufacturers from this period.
Lacquer work, carvings, textiles, and ceramics are among the wonderful crafts illustrated in 302 color photographs.
These are placed in their cultural context with a detailed text and insights from the author, who has lived in the region for many years.
Collectors of Southeast Asian artifacts finally have a reference to help identify Vietnamese craft items, their meaning in the Vietnamese culture, and their current values.
