These collections were assembled during the so-called “golden age of collecting”. This lecture will discuss the fascinating histories of their acquisition, ongoing research and the strong Hong Kong connection with the Royal Ontario Museum, notably programmes supported by the Robert H.N. Ho Family Foundation as well as the late collector T.T. Tsui.
