Designed for Scholars

Since its inception in 1890, The Danish Museum of Art & Design in Copenhagen has acquired some 3,000 ceramic pieces. The collection covers the 18th and 19th centuries and over 120 factories. With funding from the Oak Foundation, the museum has recently established a ceramics study center and detailed database, available by appointment to scholars.
