Ceramics


The collection of porcelain and majolica consists of six hundred forty-eight pieces, mainly displayed in a large showcase which was originally arranged by Giuseppe Bertini, the first director of the museum, in 1880. The showcase is between the Golden Room and the Stucco Room. Within the collection we find a group of priceless Meissen porcelain and several pieces from the most important European factories (Sévres, Wedgwood, Berlin, Strasburg, Vienna), Italian factories (Doccia and Capodimonte), as well as from the Far East.
The group of  Meissen porcelain is the most precious and significant in the collection; it dates from 1720 to the second half of the 19th century, and includes tableware, coffee and tea services, small statues and other items.
