Thursday 26th June 2008- Simon Chorley, Prinknash Abbey Park, Gloucestershire,GL4 8EX
A sale of a fine collection of Chinese Pottery and Porcelain. Four private collections, all from Gloucestershire, containing examples from the Song dynasty (960-1279) right through to the 19th century, will be sure to get the collector’s attention.
The earliest examples are from the Collection of the late Lt. Col. M V B Hill, DSO, MC, which includes Ching P’ai ware.
Examples of this ware include fine saucers, a ewer, bowls and covers. From the same collection a later piece from the Ming dynasty is a rare circular dish of green glaze with incised decoration enamelled a stork and flowers in yellow and aubergine.
Some of the other three collections on offer contain items collected in the 1930s, notably blue and white from the Headley Ward collection and items from the Edson Bradley and Sir Herbert Reed Collections.
The strength of the Chines economy and growing interest from collectors means that early Oriental porcelain and works of art are making excellent prices.
The Sale starts at 10.30 am on Thursday 26th June and Public Viewing is on Saturday 21st – Monday 23rd June 10.00 am to 4.00 pm, Tuesday 24th June 9.00 am to 7.00 pm and Wednesday 25th June 9.00 am to 4.00 pm.
