The French Porcelain Society is organising a two-day symposium on Friday 19th June and Saturday 20th June 2015 at The Wallace Collection, London. The symposium is entitled “Céramiques sans Frontières, the transfer of ceramic traditions and technologies across European borders”. It will cover a broad range of ceramic subjects from Renaissance maiolica to 20th century porcelain, and explore such themes as industrial espionage and the transference of technology and design across the geographic boundaries defining Europe, presented by an international roster of speakers. FPS symposium programme and FPS Symposium 2015 Registration form

The AGM will be on Saturday 20th June 2015.

The society was established in 1984 by a group of collectors, museum curators, dealers, auction specialists and enthusiasts with the purpose of furthering the study and appreciation of French porcelain of all periods.

We fulfil these aims with an active programme of lectures, symposia and visits to collections in England and abroad. We produce a scholarly journal and regular newsletters.

The society is open to all.The Annual General Meeting is held in London in mid-June at the time of the London antique fairs. This is followed by a lecture and dinner for members and guests. During the same period an annual outing to view public or private collections is arranged.
