Catalogue of a Collection of Continental Porcelain free pdf Excerpt from Catalogue of a Collection of Continental Porcelain: Lent and Described Many years ago I formed a collection of marked specimens of European porcelain, but from want of space I decided to confine my attention to English and Oriental examples, and I ceded to my friend the late Rev. Thomas Stani'forth, of Storrs, the continental specimens, which formed the nucleus of the remarkable collection which he brought together, now in a great measure dispersed. Other collectors of continental porcelain were Captain Reynolds, Mr. Octavius Morgan. Mr. Marryat, Mr. Loraine Baldwin, Mr. H. G. Bohn, Lady Charlotte Schreiber, Mr. Walker Joy, and others, all of whose gatherings have also been dispersed. Little by little a fresh collection grew up, partly derived from those above mentioned, and this is the one now exhibited. It will be readily seen that it is not composed to any great extent of the finest specimens of the Ceramic Art, but is chiefly documentary. There are none of the chefs d' uvre of Saxon porcelain, such as those exhibited at the Bethnal Green Museum by the Hon. W. F. Maasey-Mainwaring, nor the marvels of the Royal Factory at Sevres, well exemplified in the bequest of Mr. Jones to the South Kensington Museum. Still the collection has its merits, and every day such specimens are becoming rarer. The numerous German museums, established on the same lines as the South Kensington Museum, are absorbing marked specimens of their own and other fabrics, and German and French dealers are apt to carry off such examples as pass through the London market. Most of the continental fabrics are represented- perhaps the later French makers le-s well, as I have somewhat neglected the hard paste porcelain of France. I ought to add that in preparing this catalogue I have been very materially assisted by my friend and successor Mr. Charles H. Read, who, in addition to other kindly help, has drawn very carefully all the marks that appear in the plates.
