The Silesian Porcelain from 1820 to 1945 (¦l±ska porcelana od 1820 to 1945 roku) exhibition in Katowice displays several hundred products from leading Silesian porcelain factories.

The products of Silesian porcelain makers were popular both at home and abroad in the 19th and at the beginning of the 20th century. The Katowice exhibition presents different styles, patterns and decoration techniques. The items on show range from neo-Rococo to Art Deco style, including both luxury and everyday-use items, souvenirs and gifts. The makers include leading names such as the Carl Krister factory in Wałbrzych, today called the Krzysztof factory, and the Carl Tielsch plant in Stary Zdrój, now called Wałbrzych.

Most items come from the collection of the Silesian Museum in Görlitz, which has prepared the exhibition. The German collection is complemented with objects borrowed from Polish museums and private collections.

Katowice, ¦l±skie Museum, 3 Wojciecha Korfantego Ave., until July 20.
