PHDS Wikramaratna (PH) was born in Ceylon in 1916 and moved to London in 1937 where he gained a first class honours degree in Engineering. He returned to Ceylon at the outbreak of war and settled back in the UK following the war. PH gradually built up an extensive collection of Middle and Far Eastern ceramics becoming a member of the Oriental Ceramics Society in London. Several of his pieces were loaned for lectures and display and with his extensive knowledge and resource chose his pieces carefully. Over the years PH gifted many examples to museums, including The British Museum, Victoria & Albert, Ashmolean and Fitzwilliam. PH died in 2010 and our client was fortunate enough to acquire a substantial part of his collection.
