|Abstract:||We use a simple, rapid X-ray spectrometric method for the simultaneous quantitative determination of "background" trace element concentrations of manganese, cobalt and arsenic in 103 pieces of Chinese porcelains dating from the early Qing dynasty to 1984 which were analysed on undecorated regions. Of these, 46 pieces were also analysed on regions decorated in underglazed cobalt blue and the net ratios of Mn/Co and As/Co measured. The results are discussed and show that this affords a simple, non-destructive method of identifying modern fake Chinese porcelains. © 1988.|
