Our speaker for 2023’s William Willetts Lecture, was Professor Peter Lam, who followed in the footsteps of SEACS founder William Willetts, whose legendary catalogue, Nonya Ware and Kitchen Ching: Ceremonial and Domestic Pottery of the 19th-20th Centuries Commonly Found in Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur: South East Asia Ceramic Society,1982) is still a very useful reference today.

Professor Lam introduced the ‘Kitchen Ch’ing’ blue and white kiln site in Tai Po, New Territories, Hong Kong focusing on its dating, type-forms and context comparing it to similar items found from SEA shipwrecks and sites that were familiar to many SEACS members, and providing references for newcomers to the topic of ‘Kitchen Ch’ing’ ceramics.

Members might also find Professor Lam’s general article on “Detecting Fakes” of interest. Download it here.
