Terrine of the courtly table ware, around 1790
The Porcelain

The collection of porcelain primarily contains works of Thuringian porcelain manufactories as well as objects that are made of stoneware, earthenware and clay. The inventory includes altogether 4500 objects that mainly date back to the collection of the trading association in Rudolstadt of the 19th century. Other pieces entered into possession of the museum through the “Prince Guenther foundation”, that adminstered the princely estate. Especially during the last fifteen years, due to the research work made by the porcelain manufactories at Unterweißenbach”, the Schwarzburgian Workshops of Porcelain Art Unterweißenbach) and the Oldest Porcelain Manufactory of Volkstedt this collection gained supraregional importance.
