Porcelain

The porcelain collection includes many pieces from various Italian and European manufacturers. Noteworthy for its completeness and fine, hand-painted decorative figures, is the 18th Century table service of Ginori production, consisting of over 400 items. Select pieces of Meissen and Dresden manufacture are also on display; items include decorative tea and coffee sets as well as small, free-standing statues dating to the 19th Century. A set of Chinese export porcelain from the 18th Century displays the coat-of-arms of the Marchesi di Sorbello.
