Portrait of a Room

Here is the Imari temple jar sitting in the sun, sparkling and glittering on this Jansen inspired gilt and marble table. In the eighteenth century, there was a mania for porcelain, and whole rooms were devoted to amassing it.... it was known as "porcelainmania" I do think that the palaces in Germany, such as Sans Souci - etc. will show some excellent examples. Enjoy ! DF*****
