Title: Chinese Ceramics Bronzes and Jades in the Collection of Sir Alan and Lady Barlow
Description: London. Faber. 1963. First edition. Quarto. Hardcover. Good. Good: some wear. 174 Pages, followed by plates depicting 160 objects in black and white. The collection is particularly strong in the ceramics of the Tang (618-907 AD) and Song (960-1279 AD) dynasties, with an emphasis on a simplicity of form and decoration that was very much the taste of its founder, Sir Alan Barlow. Objects in the collection span three millenia with most periods of Chinese history represented, from the ancient Shang dynasty (c.1700-c.1050 BC) to the last dynasty, the Qing (1644-1911 AD). Tang dynasty tomb figurines, outstanding fine lead-glazed earthenwares and stonewares and excellent examples of the world??ôs earliest porcelain form the highlights of the collection.
