Curator Pick of the Month

Title: Majolica Candlestick
Artist: Doccia Porcelain Factory
Creation Date: 1875
Origin: Italy
Medium: Earthenware, tin glaze

For the month of October, The Drexel Collection has chosen this majolica candlestick from the Doccia Porcelain Factory. The company was established by Marchese Carlo Ginori in 1735. The majolica candlestick, featuring an ochre griffon and lotus flower, is part of a set of two and was created in 1875 in Italy. Majolica is a revival of the earlier style of maiolica from the 15th to 17th centuries, which was made from tin-glazed earthenware and can be identified from its white base and bright earthy colors.

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.
