The Emperor Qianlong (1735 - 1796) David Rosier Thursday 22 November 2018

Our next Special Interest Day is on the 22nd November 2018 when the topic is The Emperor Quianlong (1736 – 1796), with David Rosier as our lecturer. It is going to be a very exciting day. 
As you might have seen on the news or in the press (see the article attached), the £14 million vase sold at Sotheby's recently comes from that period and David will be talking about it. 

On a more personal note, Linda Stellman, the TASHH Programme Secretary and Days of Special Interest Organiser, works sometimes at Sotheby’s during the auction viewing period
s.  She was there during the Chinese auction at the end of May. There was one cabinet containing a few items from the Paris Chinese auction,  including  this vase.
 She was carrying it happily, but little knowing then just how much it was worth.
 She  dreads to think what could have happened if she had dropped it! 

Please make a note in your diaries of 22nd November and consider coming along to the Special Interest Day. You are very welcome to bring  family and/or friends and to introduce them to The Arts Society Hampstead Heath.

For further details please contact Linda by phone on  020 8458 9668 or by email
