Acquisition Experiences: The Good, the Bad, and the Inbetween
This was the third in SEACS’ 2020 programme of member presentations. The focus was ‘Acquisition Experiences’ and the artefacts ranged from several Tang artefacts (a mingqi figurine, a Changsha bowl, and a phoenix-headed ewer) to a contemporary Vietnamese ceramic sculpture by Nguyen Khac Quan, a selection of small blue & white Yuan jars, to several Japanese ceramics, a Staffordshire figurine of Lord Raglan (1854), and a modern ‘Xuande period’ cricket container from Jingdezhen. Every story included a lesson learned, an amusing incident, a successful auction result, or an unexpected outcome. Members dialed in from Tokyo to Toronto and all agreed it was a most entertaining and fruitful evening.
