The gift of the Hans Syz Collection in 1995 endowed the Museum with nearly three hundred examples of European and Asian ceramics meticulously acquired by Swiss-born collector Dr. Syz (1894–1991) to chart the migration of models and patterns from East to West. Documenting a continuous process of influence and adaptation, these pieces provide a discriminating review of the nuances of stylistic change resulting from three centuries of trade.
Marking: Painted in blue enamel, on bottom: [1] Crossed Ls enclosing A (Vincennes factory mark and year letter for 1753); [2] Crown (decorator's mark for Sioux l'aîné)
