Robert and Colette Wilson, prominent collectors and enthusiasts, amassed a huge number of late 19th and early 20th century Mettlach ceramics over the past thirty years. Their collection of incredibly detailed and finely crafted pieces is known to be the finest and largest collection in the world at over 3,000 pieces according to Isabella von Boch, the youngest sibling of the Villeroy & Boch family.

The entire Mettlach wares collection has been donated to the AMOCA and important and rare pieces are still being added. Part of the Wilson collection is now on public display at AMOCA’s home in Pomona, CA.

The following article about the collection and museum appeared September 12 in the Los Angeles Daily News.
