From the collection of Jürgen L. Fischer, Ascona, Switzerland
The porcelain objects nos. 21 to 59 come from the Swiss collection of Jürgen L. Fischer, one of the major European collectors of Chinese art. The extensive size of the collection largely owes to the family’s fortune from the invention of the world-famous “Uhu Alleskleber ” in 1932 (the first synthetic resin glue world-wide) by grandfather August Fischer. Jürgen L. Fischer, who lived until 2013, was an avid collector of Chinese porcelain in an astonishing wide variety, in every size and from every time period. Jürgen Fischer passed on his comprehensive knowledge in numerous specialist books – among others, his large and very instructive book about the art of Chinese snuffbottles and also an antiquarian’s guide to Chinese art. 21至59號陶瓷器來自瑞士Jürgen L. Fischer 先生的舊藏。他是歐洲人收藏中國美術品第一個藏家至一。 Fischer先生的祖父 August Fischer 在 1932 年曾發明了所謂 “Uhu 膠水”，成為世界上第一種化學膠水，幫家庭經濟情況提高，讓其美術作品收藏天天增加。 Jürgen L. Fischer先生失去於2013年，其收藏活動最多集中於中國個個時代，個大小以及個風格的陶瓷品。Jürgen L. Fischer先生的懂此學科很深，他也曾編幾本專門書籍。其中有關鼻煙壺以及收藏中國美術的專書最為出名。
