Jessica Harrison-Hall, curator, Chinese Ceramics (British Museum and Sir Percival David Collections) and Vietnamese Art

Harrison-Hall presents the four most important aspects of the outstanding ceramics collection of Sir Percival David at the British Museum, comprising Chinese ceramics with some glass objects and one handscroll. She discusses inscriptions, rare groups of 10th- and 11th-century Song stonewares, early Ming porcelains of the 15th century, and top-quality ceramics made for the three Qing emperors of the 18th century. The lecture concludes with some of the forthcoming projects involving the collection.
