Museum houses most collection's most precious pieces

viale Pratese,31
The Richard-Ginori Museum was initially established to house items collected in the 18th century by Marchese Carlo Ginori, the founder of the china and porcelain works. Subsequently it grew with the addition of services produced over the centuries for illustrious clients like the Habsburgs, Napoleon’s sister, Elisa Bonaparte, the House of Savoy and the Rothschilds. Exhibits include early prototypes, Rococo forms, Empire-style objects, richly decorated pieces from the second half of the 19th century and stylized ones designed by Giò Ponti. There are also some interesting late-Baroque waxes produced by sculptors working for the Medici grand dukes, which were used as models for porcelain statuettes and groups.
