From Jorge Welsh:

Out of the Ordinary: Living with Chinese Export Porcelain
Jorge Welsh, London, 1–8 November 2014
Jorge Welsh, Lisbon, 14 November — 6 December 2014

JW_OOTO_catalogue-cover-3d-420x420The exhibition Out of the Ordinary: Living with Chinese Export Porcelain will take place at the newly refurbished London gallery from the 1st of November, coinciding with the late night opening of Asian Art in London. The exhibition then travels to our Lisbon gallery, where it will be on view from the 14th of November until the 6th of December.

The exhibition and catalogue will focus on the most unusual forms of Chinese export porcelain produced in the late 17th and 18th centuries. Truly out of the ordinary, most of these items were copied from Western prototypes made in metal, wood, ceramics or glass. Jorge Welsh will present more than 100 objects including egg cups, strainers, cutlery handles, pudding moulds, custard pots, ladles, funnels, bulb pots, snuff boxes, cane handles, barber’s bowls and chamber pots, amongst others. Commissioned according to the latest fashions, they provide an insight into the scope of the European orders and the sophistication of contemporary consumer society in Europe at this time.

Out of the Ordinary: Living with Chinese Export Porcelain (London: Jorge Welsh Books, 2014), 344 pages, ISBN 978-0957354715, £100.
