This collection of Chinese ceramics, comprising some four hundred pieces, contains representative specimens up to about 600 AD, after which it is more comprehensive.

It covers all the main forms, styles, and techniques, including later copies as well as earlier examples, and is particularly rich in white and monochrome wares.
