This book tells the story of early Scottish connections with China, notably in Hong Kong and Canton (now Guangzhou) in the 18th and 19th centuries. It also explains how goods from China such as porcelain, silk and furniture became a “must have” for the fashionable Victorian consumer, illustrated with objects taken from the Scottish National Museums Collections. Finally, it also describes how Chinese designs and styles began to be used by Scottish artists and manufacturers in the late 19th century. All in all, it is a good introduction to the Scotland/China relationship.
