Bonham's auction catalogue of the fascinating sale of the Parry collection of Chinese art which comprised exquisite Qing dynasty ceramics, jades, lacquer and other works of art of the highest quality and craftsmanship. Acquired in the early twentieth century with a very discerning eye. So discerning that six pieces from the collection were exhibited at the legendary 1935 Royal Academy International Exhibition of Chinese Art. The six exhibits included in this sale. A total of 106 lots, all illustrated in colour and described in detail. Introductory essays on the collection and the Parry family. Illustrations of original purchase invoices from various eminent early twentieth-century London dealers. An excellent reference and insight into early twentieth-century connoisseurship and collecting of Chinese art in the UK. The catalogue produced in a small quantity and extremely hard to obtain following the sale.
