Part of a bequest to four museums by Jack Outhwaite Thompson through the Art Fund in 2003.

A selection of Chinese and Japanese works of art from the 17th-19th century, including ceramics, paintings, ivory, bronze and lacquer items. The ceramics received by Bristol, Durham and Glasgow reflect the huge 18th century trade in porcelain from China to Europe. Some of the most popular export styles are represented, such as famille verte, famille rose and Chinese Imari, and the wares include vases, punch bowls, tureens and dishes.
