Global Merchandise

Since the beginning of Chinese porcelain production in Jingdezhen in the 14th century, shapes and decorations have been produced to the taste of overseas buyers. Using objects from its own collection, the exhibition shows which types of Chinese porcelain came to Europe, especially in the 17th and 18th centuries. The Japan Gallery presents not only the classic export porcelain from Arita but also the modernised production of the Meiji period (1868-1918) from Kutani, Kyoto, Satsuma and Seto. more
