The Ning Zhou Zhai Collection

It gives me great pleasure to offer you these early Chinese ceramics from the UK-based “Spring Hill Hermit” collection.

All pieces were selected on quality and rarity and this becomes obvious when one looks at the collection in detail. Most pieces have a wonderful provenance; they were purchased from dealers such as Priestley & Ferraro, Sydney Moss and J.J. Lally, with one piece (cat no. 2) having come from the private collection of Prof M. Besser via Ben Janssens Oriental Art. Other pieces have come from eminent auction houses, such as Sotheby’s Hong Kong saleroom.

I hope you enjoy the ceramics from the Spring Hill Hermit collection and please do not hesitate to contact us if we may be of assistance to you.
