“Ceramic objects that have sold at Christie’s auction house are used as examples of delftware, majolica and faience; Oriental porcelain; European china; British pottery and porcelain; and 20th-century art and studio pottery (works by Shoji Hamada, Bernard Leach and Hans Coper). Each image is accompanied by approximate date made, origin and a brief description of the work.”—Ceramics Monthly.

Whether they're primitive coiled pots or today's elegant porcelain, ceramics are the most popular collectibles. The magnificent examples shown here give a superb idea of their variety and value: black Chinese vases elaborately painted with pretty pink flowers and curlicues; Meissen porcelain boxes and flasks from the mid-1600s, each with delicate pastoral pictures; and an alabaster Madonna and Child from 1738.
