Many of the Metropolitan's finest pieces of eighteenth-century European porcelain are housed in the Jack and Belle Linsky Galleries. The German porcelain figures and snuffboxes acquired by the Linskys include superb examples from the Meissen factory, the first in Europe to produce true porcelain. Other German factories such as Höchst and Frankenthal are also well represented by figures depicting characters from the theater or engaged in the activities of daily life. This gallery also contains porcelain dining wares made in Vienna and Saint Petersburg, as well as porcelain snuffboxes produced in a variety of whimsical forms.
