THE ancient Chinese porcelains de- scribed in the following pages were brought together for the purpose of illustrating this remarkable and par- ticular phase of Eastern art, in its technical and historical developments, confident also that the artistic and decorative quali- ties of such objects could not fail to favorably in- terest a number of visitors. The precise judgment of these art products of early and noted periods will largely remain with in- dividual tastes and predilections of the amateur, al- though the fact may be appreciated that these fas- cinating bibelots have created much interest the world over, for they not only inspire delight, but they afford a stimulating pastime for the collector, contributing by their presence, whether in a cabinet, or as an accessory for decoration, that quiet dignity of surroundings sought by a cultivated taste.
