Inhaltsangabe: For over a century ceramics have been found and collected from various sites in the Philippines. The presence and distribution of these wares throughout the archipelago testify to the country's strategic location on the ancient maritime trade route and to its interaction with its southern Chinese as well as Southeast Asian neighbors. Of particular interest has been the excavation of grave goods, remnants of the burial culture of the Filipinos before the arrival of the European colonizers. Among these are the much-prized white ware and qingbai ware from Jiangxi, Fujian, and Guangdong provinces in China, as well as white ware of Thai and Vietnamese provenance. Published in connection with an exhibition presented by the Oriental Ceramic Society of the Philippines in Manila in March 1993, this book shows the bulk of the exhibition. comprised of the delicate blue-tinged white qingbai porcelain from Jingdezhen in Jiangxi province and produced in large numbers during the Southern Song period (A.D. 1127-1279). The exceptionally fine craftmanship and variety of shapes are amply illustrated in this book. Included are five previously unpublished papers by Rita C. Tan, Li Zhi-yan, Rosemary E. Scott, Allison I. Diem, and Roxanna M. Broun relating to the characteristics of white ware and to their excavation in the Philippines supplement the catalogue of illustrations.
