Curator Pick of the Month

Title: Platter
Artist: Sèvres Factory
Creation Date: c. 1814
Origin: France
Medium: Hard paste porcelain

For the month of July, The Drexel Collection has chosen this Louis Philippe dish created by the Sèvres Factory in the early nineteenth century. Ceramics made by the Sèvres Factory were used by the aristocracy and often contained the initials of court members. This piece contains a monogrammed “LP” in foliate script and is surmounted by a crown and flanked by two laurel branches tied together at the bottom with a ribbon, the symbol for Louis Philippe, King of the French during what is referred to as the July Monarchy, from 1830-1848.

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.
