Boehm fine porcelain sculptures and open collection and limited edition collectibles, as well as historically-commissioned pieces are created by highly skilled artisans in the same Trenton, New Jersey studio in which the company was founded.
Art from the Boehm studio has been presented to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Pope John Paul II, Mikhail Gorbachev and every U.S. President since Dwight Eisenhower. Boehm Porcelain is currently showcased globally in the homes of discerning collectors and celebrities as well as the world’s foremost museums and galleries including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Hermitage, the Smithsonian, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Tokyo National Museum, the Israel Museum, the Singapore Art Museum and the Abdine Palace in Cairo.
