Room 140: Factory Ceramics after 1900

Plate, Josiah Wedgwood and Sons Ltd

This gallery contains factory-made ceramics by the leading designers and manufacturers of the 20th century. Chronological displays of Scandinavian and British ceramics by influential companies such as Wedgwood, Poole and Royal Copenhagen will examine the impact of mass produced ceramics on modern dining habits and lifestyle, such as the development of ‘oven-to-table’ ware.

Room 140 is on Level 6 of the V&A South Kensington.
