Gardiner Museum, Toronto

If you love Seves porcelain then watch the newly released videos from the Gardiner Museum featuring Dame Rosalind Savill. You will see and learn about three of her favorite pieces of porcelain dating to the 1700’s. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InvlNZ7Kr3g.  Dame Rosaline Savill was the keynote speaker at the Charleston Arts and Antiques Forum that I attended in March.  She began her museum career as a museum assistant at the Victoria & Albert Museum’s Ceramics Department in 1973 and stated her first job was “washing pots”.  She  is a very interesting, friendly and wonderful speaker and Director Emeritus of The Wallace Collection. She was appointed a Commander of the British Empire for Services to Ceramics in 2000 and a Dame of the British Empire for Services to the Arts in 2009. She is a fellow of the British Academy, and sits on a number of boards.
