The Ashmolean Museum's collection of French porcelain is remarkable both for several individual pieces from famous collections, and also for the way in which it demonstrates the development in porcelain in France from the late seventeenth century onwards. This book illustrates and discusses in detail over fifty of the most attractive, rare and important pieces in the collection, from eight known factories, including Vincennes/SÚvres, St. Cloud, Chantilly, Mennecy and Villeroy. Aileen Dawson is a Curator in the Department of Medieval and Later Antiquities at the British Museum.
