The National Gallery’s distinguished collection of decorative arts includes more than eighty works, such as Abbot Suger’s jeweled sardonyx cup from the royal abbey of St. Denis, a Limoges reliquary, and a Mosan lion aquamanile. The extensive collection of Renaissance ceramics is primarily Italian maiolica but also represents rare Medici porcelain and “Saint-Porchaire” ware.
