The Harry and Carol Djanogly Gallery

The Ceramic Study Galleries house the greater part of the V&A’s ceramics collection. In this room you will find British pottery made before 1800. Introductory displays in the inner ring of cases are arranged by technique, date and place of origin. The visible storage display in the outer ring of cases contains the bulk of the collection, arranged according to the same principles as the inner cases.

Room 138 is on Level 6 of the V&A South Kensington.
