Daisy Chan: ‘Tracing the Riesco Collection’


Tracing the Riesco Collection

Chinese porcelain and ceramics: vessels that represent movement, exchange and connection. The Museum of Croydon contains a collection of over 200 Chinese ceramics and porcelain, dating from as early as the Han dynasty, all way through to the Qing dynasty. The collection is named after a gentleman called Raymond Riesco. How did it find its way to Croydon?
