Featured Speaker: Ron Fuchs II, Curator of the Reeves Collection, Washington and Lee University

Chinese export porcelain graced the tables of Virginia’s eighteenth-century gentry households. These porcelain objects expressed a family’s taste while connecting colonial consumers to a global economy. This lecture will explore the technological and aesthetic innovations which made Chinese export porcelain so desirable then and now. Light refreshments to follow.
