Drinking bowl, Silver partly-gilt, Brig 1664, Anton Tuffitscher
During the first phase of the Corona crisis, the art and culture world seemed to be standing completely still. At least at first glance.
But behind closed doors, creative artists and museums have opened up new channels of communication and presentation.
The new digital offers from museums and artists have been very well received in the past few weeks and have once again shown how important and above all how systemically relevant art and culture are for our society.
We are all in an important transformation process that will continue for quite a while.
A lot will change for good.

The positive attitude of the art and cultural world of recognizing new opportunities in this crisis and seizing the associated opportunities to find new formats for communication and presentation is astonishing

Therefore, today we would like to present to you the second part of our creative contribution for friends of historical silver in everyday Corona.

As in the last newsletter, we have listed a selection of outstanding objects made of (gilded) silver, which you can access by clicking on them. This time we are moving to other European countries.

Now we wish you exciting reading and great discoveries!
We would of course be very happy if you also browse our website.
