Curator Pick of the Month

Title: Plate with Doves from Galla Placida
Artist: Royal Vienna Porcelain Manufactory
Creation Date: 1796-1798
Origin: Vienna, Austria
Medium: Hard-paste porcelain, gilding and enamel

This Royal Vienna Porcelain plate, rumored to have belonged to Queen Carolina of Naples and Sicily, the sister of Marie Antoinette, was made by the Imperial and Royal Porcelain Manufactory of Vienna, Austria. The manufactory produced porcelain from 1744-1864 under the initial ownership of Empress Maria Theresa. Each authentic piece of Royal Vienna Porcelain contains a blue – striped shield from the coat of arms of the Duke of Austria, known as the beehive mark, to mark its authenticity. From 1780-1830 the manufactory issued porcelain in a Classical style, referring to art of antiquity, and used gold relief as decoration, as exhibited by The Drexel Collection’s example. Come visit this gorgeous piece in Drexel’s Main Building on the third floor!

Welcome to the Collection

Drexel University, initially Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry, was founded on the belief that education should be both practical and cultural—and that art should be not only beautiful, but educational. On that principle, The Drexel Collection—the University’s flagship collection of art—was founded alongside the University in 1891. Today, the Collection remains a resource for historically and culturally significant works of art as Drexel University pioneers a model for the modern, urban university.
