Ceramics are the strong point of the Leblanc-Duvernoy museum; faience is represented by an extraordinary collection from the Revolutionary period, a rare set of plates with saints, and reference series from the production sites in the Auxerre region.
Puisaye stoneware, a mainly utilitarian ceramic product, is represented by a large number of pieces showing its various uses, from the most common to the most unexpected
Paintings and sculptures selected from the collections of the Auxerre museums find their natural place in this small mansion.
