For centuries ceramics have been a central feature of Chinese art and culture. They were employed in everyday life and served as both ritualistic and funerary objects. Dr Heribert Meurer's pre-eminent collection of 174 high-quality pieces dating from 1050 BCE to AD 1280 - which up until now has remained unpublished - offers an impressive panorama of the artefacts' roles, as well as the vessel forms and techniques of early Chinese ceramic art, complemented by over 30 objects from the GRASSI Museum Leipzig, where the collection was endowed in 2017.

The focal points of the collection are the ceramics of the Tang and Song dynasties. Examples of the popular Sancai (tricolor) lead glaze, Celadon porcelain from Yueyao, Yaozhou and Longquan and Changsha ware, so-called Jian black porcelain from Jianyang Prefecture and Quingbai ware from the southern kiln sites of the Song era illustrate the wealth, diversity, high quality and exceptional appeal of early Chinese ceramics.
