Upstairs, Downstairs: Porcelain and Pewter Decorative Arts from the Collection

Bouchelle Changing Gallery
On Display through April 28, 2019

This exhibition shows the everyday objects that helped define upper class and working-class lives. Expensive and fragile porcelain by such renowned manufacturers as the German Meissen company have filled the tables and cupboards of the wealthy since the 1700s while rustic, durable pewter had to suffice for the daily needs of the lower classes.
