The collection on view consists of a lime-green ground famille rose cup with Daoguang seal mark and period. The rose cup is enameled in shades of rose-pink, blue, green, yellow, and red with four gilded shou characters. Apart from cups other objects such as vases, jars, animal figurines, and porcelain dishes are also on display. A Daoguang seal mark and period blue and white 'flower scroll' dish acquired in Shanghai or Tianjin in the 1930s along with a Qing dynasty, 19th century, carved celadon jade ruyi scepter are also part of the auction.
