Title: Collecting antique Chinese porcelain: patterns, provenance and pitfalls

Professor Alan Fletcher MRIA in association with Sheppard’s Irish Auction House

Following on from our very successful first look at the theme of Chinese porcelain in 2011, this illustrated lecture will continue the exploration into the fascinating world of antique Chinese porcelain, explaining the background to recent market trends, and presenting examples of antique Chinese ware. Chinese now seek to buy back the porcelain treasures which were exported in thousands from China to the West from the 18th century onwards, prices have rocketed in international auction houses.

A special road show event will follow and the public can bring along own pieces of Chinese porcelain to be assessed for authenticity, historical interest, and opinion on possible current market value.

If you would like to attend please email stating clearly the event you wish to attend to RSVP a place.
