Event description

Description

Each year in the 1600s and 1700s, millions of pieces - services, vases, and ornamental wares - were carried from the fabled city of Jingdezhen (the Porcelain Capital of the World) over the mountain border into Guangdong province, passing through the aptly named 'Gate of the Heroes', then by merchant ship to grace the houses and tables in Europe.

This fascinating talk is by Lars Tharp who has appeared in many programmes on TV and radio including the Antiques Roadshow. ADFAS is pleased to welcome back such an excellent speaker for this fascinating topic.

Tea and Coffee is available before the lecture.
