SPRING IS IN THE AIR  
Fruit and flower designs have a long history on Chinese porcelain, the earliest dating from the Tang dynasty (618-906). Spring flowers are blooming in profusion on many examples of the Duberly collection. Peonies, peach and cherry blossom executed in bright glazes were popular exports to the European market during the Qing dynasty (1644-1912). Butterflies symbolise young love and teamed with a bee, indicate luck and prosperity.
A visit to the Treasury provides the perfect opportunity to explore the meaning of Chinese decorative motifs.
