When it comes to export porcelain, eggshell production during the Yongzheng reign (1723-1735) is generally seen as the best of the best. The sale features a wide range of pieces from this field, including the much sought after ruby back examples. A fine example is lot 355, a famille rose plate of fine quality, depicting a beautiful Chinese female figure caring for two boys.

The tea ceremony has always been an important part of China's cultural heritage, and this importance has been reflected in this sale. With over 200 teapots and cups and saucers, the collection consists of rare and decorative pieces from all periods. Lot 298 is an exceptional pair of Chinese Imari-style teapots with covers, made in the late 17th or early 18th century under the reign of the Kangxi emperor.

No tea ceremony is complete without stunning cups and saucers, and a number of museum examples in this sale will also spark the connoisseur's admiration. Lot 451 is an excellent and inviting set, of which another example is illustrated in the Dutch Rijkmuseum's latest Chinese porcelain catalogue. The black mountain landscape is an unusual contrast on the thin eggshell porcelain.

Earlier wares are also on sale in large numbers, including a very desirable example is the blue and white double gourd vase, dating to the Transitional period depicts a meeting between officials. Lot 1024 is headlined to be the most desirable amongst the many examples of late Ming dynasty vases.

This blue and white model of a pipa lute, made in the 19th century, appears to be one of the earliest, if not the earliest, pieces of this type recorded. Modestly priced due to its condition, it's definitely a lot to watch in this attractive sale (lot 785.)
