Fine China

This magnificent set of Old Paris china was Virginia Campbell’s best, purchased in the 1850s for her new home on Lucas Place. Each piece in the set of more than 200 plates and dishes is painted with a different fruit, nut, vegetable or flower. Only about half of the set remains at CHM today.
