Birds, Bugs and Butterflies: Lady Betty Cobbe’s ‘Peacock’ Worcester Porcelain @ State Apartments Galleries

In 1763 Lady Betty Cobbe and her husband began a purchasing a splendid dessert and dinner service of Worcester porcelain for Newbridge House. At around 400 pieces, it would be one of the largest on record from an 18th-century British porcelain factory. Most unusually, it possessed sets of matching Worcester porcelain handles fitted with Dublin cutlery.

This exhibition, curated by Alec Cobbe, will showcase some of the most beautiful pieces of the Cobbe service at Dublin Castle for the first time.
