Description

An exhibition of 109 colorful, commercially produced ceramics. Art Deco patterned earthenware dishes, radically different from German handcrafted porcelain, were popular between wars. These objects, part of a collection donate to the Germanisches National museum in Nuremberg, were circulated by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service.
