Study Collections for Glass and Ceramics

1 January 2008–27 March 2016

The Museum of Decorative Arts and Design

The Museum of Decorative Arts and Design has collected glass and ceramics ever since the museum was founded in 1876. The study collections present highlights in the history of glass and ceramics.

Over 1,800 objects have been retrieved from storage. These objects elaborate and supplement the permanent exhibitions on the first and second floors. The first room of the collection is dedicated to the history of glass, the second room features the history of ceramics from antiquity until 1850, and the third room showcases ceramics from 1850 until today.
