Qing Dynasty Imari Porcelain

Tuesday 26th March 2019

Lecturer: PAUL HARRIS

Prices for Chinese art have rocketed in recent years. More than £50 million was paid for a vase in a British auction house - and not paid for! Paul Harris collects Chinese art and visits China regularly. He will explain some of the pitfalls in seeking to acquire these beautiful objects and explain the markings, faults and other characteristics which enable the expert to determine the real age of an object. Examples of Chinese artefacts will be shown at the lecture.
