A new work by Elizabeth Ellis OAM (author of Rare & Curious) investigating the milieu and the mysteries of the magnificent "Sydney Punchbowl", one of the most fascinating treasures of the Mitchell Library in the State Library of New South Wales. A fine and large porcelain bowl manufactured in China as export ware about 1820, the Punchbowl is decorated with a hand-painted panoramic scene of Sydney Cove around the outside and a group of Aboriginal figures as the inner centre-piece, and finished with exquisite Chinese-style floral and gilded bandings. As Elizabeth's book makes clear, the Punchbowl and its intriguing history deserve to be better known, which is why Hordern House has also commissioned a deluxe limited edition replica of the bowl, hand-crafted by Chinese craftsmen in Jingdezhen, China. This book also includes a brief essay on the making of the replica.
