Cummer announces new book on Meissen



The Cummer Museum is pleased to announce a new publication on its collection of early Meissen porcelain.

The 575-page volume is written by Ulrich Pietsch, director of the State Porcelain Collection in Dresden, Germany, the most important and most extensive collection of Meissen porcelain in the world.

The publication contains full color photographs and complete text entries for 689 pieces in the Wark Collection of Early Meissen Porcelain, given to The Cummer by St. Augustine siblings Ralph and Constance Wark. The collection they assembled is regarded as the most significant collection of its type in the United States and one of the top three collections in the world.

The book will be available in the museum store on May 13th.
