Silver treasures from a private collection in Basel
How can you drink from a lobster claw? How can water be turned into wine? Ships filled with wine passing over the table, tumbling cups, immense tankards, and much more: the silver collection from private ownership, on public display for the first time, provides delightful insights into the diversity of silver-gilt vessels as well as their manufacture and use. The drinking customs of the Baroque period also show parallels to today's drinking culture.
