"Any consideration of the development of the art of porcelain in Europe must award the highest place to Germany's contribution. The artistic and technical achievements of the artists and craftsmen who made this possible profoundly influenced the work of other European factories, and particularly those of England. They liberated porcelain from its dependence on the Orient and created a purely European style. German faience is hardly less important, but although it still exists in fairly large quantities in England and America, littler has been written about it in English, and specimens often remain unidentified for lack of reliable information. Some of [this] material relating to the lives and activities of the more important artists is the result of recent research, and has not hitherto been published in English."
