SCB Green and Blue Ceramic Exhibit

A Big Birthday Shout to Imane! Happy Birthday Sweety!

————————————

Last weekend, Standard Chartered Bank presented a showcase of blue and green Chinese ceramics from my buddy Ambrose Nathan’s private collection. Ambrose, country Manager for G4S Security Services Sdn Bhd, has been collecting Chinese ceramics for the last 10 years.

"Blue and green are our bank’s colours," said Ms Siew Chuen, CEO of SCB. They ranged from the Warring states period to late Qing according to the press release. Beginning with the purchase of three late Qing statuettes, he built a collection of Chinese pottery, stoneware and porcelain ranging from the Neolithic period to the early republic period of Chinese history.
