The Chinese ceramics collection of Sir Percival David (1892–1964)

In the 1920s – a time of political changes in China – a young man travelled to Beijing to study the exquisite pieces of Chinese ceramics in the imperial collection. Captivated by the Chinese connoisseurship, he built up, over 40 years, a collection of finest porcelain and stoneware reflecting the taste of the imperial court from the Song to the Qing dynasties (10th–18th century) with their tantalizing glazes and perfect shapes. The illustrated talk by Dr Christina Kallieris shows objects from Sir Percival's collection, which is today on display in the British Museum in London.
