Topkapi Palace Museum Porcelains
   

In regard to its size, rich variety and high quality, Topkapi Palace has the most valuable collection of Chinese and Japanese porcelain in the world. At present, it can be challenged only by the former Chinese Imperial collections now in Taiwan, and was also previously challenged - until the World War II - by the collections gathered together at Dresden by Augustus the Strong of Saxony, some items of which vanished during the war years.

The palace contains a total of 10.700 Chinese pieces, ranging from the late Sung (13th century) and the Yuan dynasties (1280-1368), through the Ming (1368-1644) to the Ch'ing period (1644-1912). A number of these are now on display in the Palace Kitchens.

In the collection, there are up to 730 Japanese porcelains dating from 17-19th centuries. These are mainly Imari ware produced in and around Arita in southern Japan.
