If you are a person of imagination, and content to leave our material world and weave romance in the back parlour, buy yourself a cabinet and fill it with pieces of old armorial porcelain . . . and the china will turn novelist.

. . . It is none of your Worcester porcelain or Lowestoft ware, but a breath straight from the land where the sun rises, rich and bold and delicate. A world of ballad and of lost hopes is in it; ideals of the West intermingled with the glamour of the East; in one delicate piece the tale of an English peer and a Chinese mandarin. The sun never sets over this porcelain. (W.F.G. Evening Standard, 1924)
