The Sir Percival David Foundation Collection, also affectionately known as the PDF collection, consists of some 1,700 objects of green and white wares, blue and white wares, monochrome and painted ceramics. This collection lends itself to be a perfect model for the study of history of Chinese ceramics.

Lim Yah Chew and Marjorie Chu will analyse this collection and trace the ancestry of ceramics from the Tang period (618–907) to the Qing dynasties (1644-1912).
