The Haus zum Kirschgarten’s light-flooded ground floor and impressive vaulted cellar house the museum’s very varied collection of ceramics. The magnificent holdings of the Pauls Eisenbeiss Foundation include several outstanding examples of 18th-century German porcelain (from Meissen, Ludwigsburg, Frankenthal and Höchst). These, like the large assortment of faience from Strasbourg and wares from other French, Swiss and southern German manufactories, are sure to delight not just porcelain connoisseurs but all visitors interested in the history of culture. The figurines and tableware illustrate how people of different social classes lived and give us a glimpse of the table culture of past times.
