GLASS HOME WEAR AND PAGEANTRY, RENAISSANCE-C19TH, THE MESNIL COLLECTION

MUSEE DES ARTS DECORATIFS, BORDEAUX

The Musée des Arts décoratifs presents "Glass Home wear and Pageantry, Renaissance – c19th, The Mesnil Collection", including a particularly remarkable set Venetian glasses. For four months, two collections are united under one roof, one public, and the other special. The first was formed with the objective to create and establish a heritage; the second was made with freedom and the passion of an amateur.
