Chinese Export Porcelain for the American Market
April 17, 1998 - September 6, 1998
Drawn from the collection of Mr. H. Richard Dietrich, Jr. and the Dietrich American Foundation, this exhibition highlights the distinctive hard-paste porcelain that was produced in China as early as the ninth century, and which eventually became a prime export to European and North American markets. The collection includes punch bowls, cider jugs, a mantel garniture, custard cups, plates, and a tea service. Featured are pieces that once belonged to George and Martha Washington, the Morris family of Philadelphia, the Van Rensselaers of Albany, New York, and other prominent families of the Federal period.
