Exhibition of Chinese Collectors' Yue wares at Cixi Museum

blog statsIn Oct 2011, I made a trip to Cixi Shanglin Hu to visit the Yue kiln sites.  The Shanglin lake is serene and beautiful. Along the shore of the Shanglin lake, numerous Yue shards could still be seen, a testament to the scale of production.

One of the highlight of the trip was the opportunity to view the Yue collections of Chinese collectors which were exhibited at the Cixi musuem.  The quality of the pieces are exceptional and the variety surprisingly wide.  The pieces on display spans Eastern Han to Song dynasty.
