Our second meeting of the Fall season will be held on Tuesday, November 11, 1997 at 8:00 PM at the Lighthouse, 111 East 59th Street, between Park Avenue and Lexington Avenue, New York, NY.
The speaker of the evening will be Mr. Raymond Yarbrough an inveterate student of European ceramics, who's interests have shifted from various earthenwares to porcelain. For the last twenty years or more, his collecting and study have focused on early Bow porcelain, the first English bone china. He was a founder of the San Francisco Ceramic Circle, and has long been a member of the English Ceramic Circle and the American Ceramic Circle. Preceding the publication of his book, Bow Porcelain and the London Theatre in 1996, his articles have appeared in Antiques and the Fine Arts, Ars Ceramica, and Apollo: The International Magazine of the Arts.
Mr. Yarbough has acquired several unique specimens and his inquiry has revealed some insightful ceramic comparisons and historic correlations. His approach is one which attempts to view the object in a social and artistic context.
His topic for our lecture will be "The First Decade of Bow: Englands Earliest Porcelain." Please bring in some examples of Bow Porcelain.
