This collection consists of approximately 500 pieces of porcelain and china, which viewed together create a condensed historical survey of the development of domestic china.
There are good examples of early British and European tin glazed earthenware, early Meissen porcelain and examples of 18th and 19th century china and porcelain from Swansea, Bow, Chelsea, Derby, Lowestoft, Worcester, Caughley, Coalport, Plymouth and Staffordshire factories. The collection includes Chinese and Japanese porcelain dating from the 16th to 19th century, as well as English and European glasses from the 18th and 19th century.
Most of the collection is on display in the Council Chamber Corridor in the Main Arts Building.
It is available to be seen without making special arrangements during the opening hours of the University.
