Valuable traditional Maastricht commemorative plates on show in Centre Céramique

Centre Céramique is in the middle of significant renovations, however they still want to provide some interesting exhibitions for visitors. A new collection of commemorative places is on show in the vitrine in the main hall.

These type of plates have been hanging on the walls in many households for decennia. Yet the seemingly ordinary 'teleuren' – as it is called in Mestreechs – are more special than we think. Every paintstroke tells a story and is painted in a traditional Maastricht way. Head to this week's Weekoverzicht for an interview with Centre Céramique's resident archaeologist Wim Dijkman about the collection (subtitled in English).
