As a member of the Selection Committee he helped to organise the following exhibitions: The Art of the Sung Dynasty, 1960, The Arts of the Ch'ing Dynasty, 1964, and The Ceramic Art of China, Victoria and Albert Museum, 1971. In 1975 he published Chinese Ceramics, London, with a foreword by Sir Harry Garner. He was a contributor to the Transactions of the Oriental Ceramics Society and has written various articles and reviews for Oriental Art and the Connoisseur. He was a client of Bluett's from 1953 until the 1970s. The Neave-Hill family lent six pieces to the 1971 Exhibition in the Victoria and Albert Museum.

    We would like to thank Dominic Jellinek for his assistance in researching the Bluett's provenance.
