About the Talk

David Rockefeller died in 2017 at the age of 101.

He was the last surviving grandson of John D. Rockefeller, America’s first billionaire. Gathered over a lifetime and handed down from previous generations, the collection reflects the Rockefeller family’s deep, life-long passion for art.

The collection contains several dinner services and decorative porcelain items of Chinese Export as well as European porcelain.
