"The Haggerty Museum of Art exhibition, At the Tsar’s Table: Russian Imperial Porcelain from the Raymond F. Piper Collection, in conjunction with At the Duke’s Table presented by the Captain Frederick Pabst Mansion in Milwaukee, represents the most complete presentation of the Piper collection. The exhibition traces the development of Russian imperial porcelain from the reign of Empress Elizabeth I (1741-1761), daughter of Peter the Great, to the reign of Emperor Nicholas II (1894-1917) and includes porcelain from the Soviet period. The exhibition continues a focus on decorative arts as featured previously in the Haggerty Museum of Art 1998 exhibition, A Passion for Porcelain: Three Centuries of Meissen Floral Painting and the 1994 exhibition, Kings and Queens and Soup Tureens: Selections from the Campbell Museum Collection."
