Silver and non ferrous metals

The ‘Precious metals’ collection includes sacral and secular goldwork objects from the 12th to the 21st century. Among the highlights of the collection are a group of extremely rare medieval drinking vessels, centrepiece figures and drinking vessels dating from the 16th to the 20th century, fine tableware and cutlery from the 18th to the 20th century, and works of historicism.

The ‘Tin and non-ferrous metals’ collection comprises items made of tin and non-ferrous metals, particularly tableware and drinking vessels, dating from the 14th to the 16th century.
