The Museum of Folk Arts and Crafts starts the Russian Glass exhibition with paragons of glass art of the 18th – early 20th centuries.
The exposition presents a great variety of forms: from simple vessels and magnificent baroque engraved cups of the 18th century to refined glass of the Classicism; from sparkling crystal ware of the Russian empire style to the historical color multitude of the second half of the 19th century.
The exposition is crowned with a rare exhibit of the “propaganda” art glass of the 1920s.
The exhibition runs from December 12 till January 18, 2015.
