Ceramic Study Center

The Ceramic Study Center will be closed until further notice.

The Ceramic Study Center adjoins the Bowles Porcelain Gallery on the lower level of the Legion of Honor. This room houses the Legion’s ceramics collection not on view in the Porcelain Gallery and includes examples of English, French and German pottery and porcelain and Chinese export wares. Objects are displayed in glass-fronted wall cabinets organized by place of origin and material. There is also a small group of ceramics for visitors to handle.


The Ceramic Study Center is open every Saturday during the 11:30 am free guided tour in the Bowles Porcelain Gallery. It is also available for study by appointment.
