William H. Lautz Antique Porcelains, the Seattle Ceramic Society, and the Seattle Art Museum

This collection provides access to original photographs and price lists from William H. Lautz Antique Porcelains of New York that were received by members of the Seattle Ceramic Society. The Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Ceramic Society, and William H. Lautz have historical connections that address the provenance of objects in the Porcelain Room at SAM, the collectors who helped shaped the Seattle Art Museum's European porcelain collection, and porcelain collecting in America in the mid 20th century.
