The Oriental Ceramic Society (OCS) is the leading international society for the study and appreciation of Asian art, with a special focus on ceramics. 

Founded in 1921 by a group of ceramics’ collectors and connoisseurs, the Society’s mission soon expanded well beyond the field of ceramics to the arts of Asia in general. Through lectures, handling sessions, exhibitions and publications, the Society provides a dynamic forum in which members can develop and exchange their knowledge with experts and fellow enthusiasts.
