Factory Vezzi Factory Italian

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 506

The third factory in Europe to produce hard-paste porcelain was founded in Venice in 1720 by Francesco Vezzi (1651–1740); it remained in operation for only seven years. The imperfections of the teapot's glaze reflect the experimental nature of porcelain at this time.
