Chinese Ceramics, from objects made for ritual burial in tombs to wares destined for the emperor’s dining table, are displayed in this gallery at the Kwek Hong Png Wing. The objects inspire stories of how they were made, used, traded, and valued in the history of China. A special display shows the white porcelain made in the Dehua kilns in Fujian province, which was highly coveted by Europeans and others outside of China. The ACM has one of the finest collections of these largely figural porcelain wares.
