Chinese Export Porcelain from the Liebman Collection
Catherine Coleman Brawer

In the first half of the 20th century Milwaukee collector Ethel Liebman acquired hundreds of exquisite Chinese export porcelains, which were presented to the Elvehjem in the 1970s. Over a hundred of these wares are described and documented, including armorial and pseudo-armorial pieces, some porcelains decorated with indigenous Eastern designs, and others with Western motifs.
