The Percival David Foundation of Chinese Art is a collection of Chinese ceramics and related items, on permanent display in its own gallery in Room 95 at the British Museum. The Foundation's main purpose is to promote the study and teaching of Chinese art and culture. The collection consists of some 1,700 pieces of Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasty porcelain from the 10th century to the 18th, as well as a painting, Scroll of Antiquities (Guwan tu) dating from the Yongzheng (1723–35) reign.
Smitten by the riches of the Imperial Collection, connoisseur Sir Percival David (1892-1964) braved the "insuperable obstacles" posed by rival Chinese collectors-and the chicaneries of the Chinese bank which then owned the priceless porcelains in the collection-to purchase, in 1926, the trove, which is now quartered at the University of London.
Sir Percival Victor David Ezekiel David, 2nd Baronet (21 July 1892 – 9 October 1964) was a Bombay-born British financier who is best known as a scholar and collector of Chinese ceramics. He also formed a collection of Chinese stamps and postal history that has been evaluated as one of the greatest ever assembled. David was born in Bombay into a Jewish family in British India that originated in Baghdad. His father, Sir Sassoon David, 1st Baronet, founded the Bank of India.
