The Collection of a Swedish Connoisseur, Stockholm.
Compare David Howard & John Ayers, China for the West, p. 188-189, fig. 188, for a plate with the similar 'Rockefeller' pattern.
The collection is a study collection, accumulated during a lifetime. The collector operated within the field of oriental works of art. Due to his knowledge and sense of quality he was of great help to many of the members on Kinaklubben (The China Club) with members such as the Swedish Crown Prince Gustav Adolf, Emil Hultmark and Carl Kempe. The collection is mainly acquired in Sweden and London.
