The foundation of the Dixon's decorative art holdings is the Warda Stevens Stout Collection of Eighteenth century German porcelain, which was bequeathed to the museum in 1985. Numbering nearly 600 pieces, this collection includes a remarkable survey of Meissen tableware and figures dating from the early Bottger period through mid-century, a large group of Hochst figures, and selected figures and tableware from the Vienna, Frankenthal, Furstenberg, Ludwigsburg, Nymphenburg, and Berlin porcelain factories. The Dixon has expanded its collection parameters to include outstanding examples of French 18th and 19th century porcelain and other decorative arts.
Um 12:30 Uhr treffen wir uns zum Mittagessen bei Sabine Baltzs Restaurant "Fratelli's" im Botanischen Garten (gegenüber von Dixon, 750 Cherry Rd).
