The Collector


These figures come from the collection of Felicia Warburg Rogan of Charlottesville, Virginia.

Mrs. Rogan began collecting after an encounter at a dinner party with a collector of Chinese export porcelain teapots, who suggested that she combine her interest in animals and porcelain and collect Chinese export porcelain figures. That was 50 years ago, and since then she built one of the finest private collections of Chinese export porcelain animal figures in existence. The collection is a promised bequest to the Reeves Museum of Ceramics.
