Catalog of the first exhibition focusing on the Percival David Foundation's remarkable 17th- and 18th-century porcelains to travel to the U.S. The collection is particularly rich in examples of the rare imperial porcelains decorated with delicate overglaze enamel design, documenting one of China's enduring contributions to the arts.

The magnificent Qing examples in the exhibition and in this volume, totaling 65 pieces, provide a wonderful overview of the Chinese tradition of art connoisseurship during the last period of dynastic rule. Highlights include a basket-shaped perfume holder, Kangxi period, 1662-1722, and a hanging vase for a sedan chair, Qianlong mark and period, 1736-95.
