Backstory and Context
A permanent exhibit opened in February 2010 features a 1,200-piece collection of Czechoslovakian porcelain, pottery and glass, produced only for a 20-year period between the World Wars. The factories which made these pieces were either destroyed by the Nazis or made into munitions factories, and the pieces were not produced thereafter.
