Porcelain and glass

Before 1941, the Gatchina museums holdings of decorative arts included a unique porcelain and glass collection dating from the 16th to the early 20th centuries. The most important pieces in the collection were the artworks produced at the Imperial Porcelain Factory in St. Petersburg and by leading European manufactures, as well as an extensive range of porcelain ware from China and Japan.

The collection was considerably damaged during World War II. Nevertheless, over 2,300 pieces have been preserved that now make up the core of the Gatchina palaces porcelain and glass collection, comprising fine Russian pieces of art, works produced by masters from Meissen, Vienna and Berlin porcelain manufactories and Sevres masterpieces.
