From the Collection of Tove and Karl Emil Strømstad (born 1936), Norway. The couple built their collection over the decades. They started to collect in the early 1970's after buying the first piece, a famille rose bowl, dating from the 18th Century. Mr Strømstads work at IBM brought the couple and their family to various places around the world and they built their vast academic collection of ceramics dating from the Han dynasty to the Qing dynasty by visiting auction houses, antique dealers and antique fairs. Always striving to acquire pieces form different epoques and constantly seeking more knowledge about the pieces, the techniques and their history.
