Shows 86 extremely fine and beautiful examples of imperial Chinese ceramics from the private Hong Kong Songzhutang collection. The first ceramic illustrated is a northern Song jun vase. This is followed by 9 imperial Ming pieces from the Hongwu-Jiajing reigns. The remaining 76 imperial examples are Qing dating from Kangxi through to Daoguang. Cups, vases, bowls, dishes and other shapes and forms - and includes some pairs. All illustrated in fine and large colour plates, many of the pieces being shown in multiple views plus their basemarks. A very pleasing feature of this work is the size of the illustrations which allows a good number of the examples to be shown life-size or near life-size. Descriptions accompany.
