This discussion focuses upon the Weltausstellung , the International Exhibition, held at Vienna in 1873. The objectives of the exhibition and the separate contributions of Japan and China are discussed and compared. The Liverpool collector James Lord Bowes was one of those who visited the exhibition and purchased items; his visit and acquisitions are addressed. Finally, mention is made of the subsequent establishment of an Oriental Museum in Vienna which carried forward some of the objectives of the original 1873 display.
