The Jie Rui Tang Collection of only Kangxi porcelain was built up over the course of nearly 40 years by an American collector. Within the collection are some of the finest examples of Kangxi porcelain extant in the world today. The entire collection consists of over 700 examples, any one of the pieces would be a welcome addition to any collection public or private. 

A few weeks before Christmas in December of 2017 the authors were kind enough to forward me a copy of this terrific new book.  Shortly after Christmas in the New Year, I had the opportunity to spend an entire afternoon viewing and handling the key pieces illustrated in the book.  I also looked at many others not included, which were all equally stellar.  The collection, ranging from massive fine vases to sublime smaller table wares were all exceptional in quality and condition.  Several were of types I'd not ever seen before in person, including an enchanting Famille Jaune Openwork Cylindrical Perfumer.

Enjoy the video we put together about the book and collection. If you're a serious collector and fan of porcelains of the Kangxi period, you really need this book.  It will go out of print, so buy it now. You can buy it from the Paragon Book Gallery for $120.00, it's already being offered on eBay for $180 which means it will become much more expensive in time.
