The Hong Kong Maritime Museum is housing 34 paintings depicting, very carefully, the different stages of Porcelain making under the Qing dynasty. Although “Trading China: Paintings of the Porcelain Production Process in the Qing Dynasty” occupies a rather small portion of the museum display, it is worth going to admire that exquisite set of excellent quality, especially if you never visited the Maritime Museum before.

Provenance of the set:

 The paintings came from private hands. Madam Susan Chen Hardy made that donation to the HKMM, a Museum she had always supported. She and her husband Anthony Hardy have already made significant contributions to the Museum.

From Jingdezhen kilns to Western Merciers merchants.
