Sotheby’s: CATALOGUE OF FINE CHINESE EXPORT PORCELAIN ALSO JADES AND OTHER WORKS OF ART. [The Property of a Number of Collectors]. London, 1975. Colour frontispiece plate, 42 pp. text plus 28 pp. b/w plates hors texte. 24x18 cm. Paper.
Sotheby's sale catalogue of 322 lots of Chinese art - export porcelain, Qing ceramics, jades and other material from a number of collections. Many fine items, particularly the ceramics and jades. The most interesting piece is lot 291 (illustrated Plate XXIII), a large Qing jade double-handled bowl of archaic kui form that undoubtedly came from Yuanmingyuan. It relates very closely to a Qing imperial "Palace piece" jade vessel and cover again in archaic bronze form that is stated to have been in the Bowering collection and which was bought in Peking in 1861 from General Straubenzee. (See Sotheby's 1947: Important Chinese Art: Property of Henry Brown, lot 108.). A scarce catalogue.
