Films address issues related to religion in a variety of ways. Films are generally loaned for free for two weeks, with an agreement that users will not charge admission to see the film. Watching films is an interactive experience, making it ideal for inspiring and enhancing discussion on spiritual, professional and ethical topics. New films are added as they become available.
Once again the Pronk workshop is strongly represented with a truly exceptional pair of wall sconces and a number of square section bottles of which the most rare for reasons explained in the text is the yellow ground pair.
A private collection consisting mainly of pairs of vases, all of high quality but topped by a pair of outstanding baluster vases painted with cockerels is one of many highlights of the famille rose genre, which also includes garnitures, pairs of wine coolers and a number of eggshell pieces. Figures are represented by a lady in the costume of the Frankfurt Ghetto and by two fine pairs of candle holders, one as famille rose court ladies and the other as famille verte boys.
There is a large pair of armorial monteiths for the Portuguese market and a small number of rare armorial plates and dishes, a massive pair of blue and white tureens, covers and stands of baroque form together with other tureens of unusual form, which include a pair of turquoise biscuit examples identical to gilt bronze mounted ones displayed in the Louvre.
The American market is unusually well represented this year. Possibly the stand out item is the bowl commissioned for Henry Eckford, father of the US Navy, but almost as important are the two hong bowls, one in famille rose and the other en grisaille both showing the Stars and Stripes flying among the European flags.
Over the past thirty years we have certainly bought and sold more hong bowls than any other dealer but, up until now, had never found an eighteenth century example with the stars and stripes.
To have two is unprecedented. We have a strong showing of painted enamel that includes a number of pieces from the Beijing workshop demonstrating the variety and outstanding quality of workmanship and virtuosity of the Chinese artists.
Also for the Chinese market is a fine vase decorated in under-glaze copper red and an eggshell bowl of unprecedented size and exceptional quality having the six character mark of Yongzheng and of the period. As with our more recent catalogues Will Motley has not only researched and written the text but continues to update his research on items from previous catalogues.

This interesting design copies the style of Dutch delft dishes and plates of this period, possibly directly from a ceramic example taken to Canton and transported to Jingdezhen.
This rare design is from a single set of flatware for the Dutch Market, most of which is together in one collection. The design is sometimes called a punishment scene, as images of unpleasant Chinese punishments were popular in the West.
However the poses of the two men either side of the prone figure communicate something else. The theme here is about hospitality to travelling pilgrims and the figure lying on the ground has suffered a mishap.
The other figures are coming to his aid and offering help. This symbolism is very Chinese in origin and would not have been readable by a Western eye, leading some scholars to conclude that these dishes may have been made for the market within Chinese settlements in Asia rather than for export to the West.
