Reviews - What do customers think about The Art of Silver Jewellery: From the Minorities of China, The Golden Triangle, Mongolia and Tibet?
Minority Silver of China Jan 5, 2007
An excellent overview of the silver jewelry of the minority tribes of China, it also addresses clothing and textiles. The photos are superb, with some elements shown larger than actual size. This book would be of interest to both collectors and artisans. The items depicted are from the Rene van der Star Collection. That is the same collection showcased in the book Ethnic Jewellery from Africa, Asia and Pacific Islands. As with the latter book, a number of experts on ethnic jewelry contributed to the total effort, each writing in his particular area of expertise.
