MORE INFORMATION

The Qing Dynasty was an extraordinary period in the long history of Chinese glass. The great strides made during this period were due to the decision of the forth Qing emperor, Kangxi, to establish a glassworks inside the Forbidden City in 1696. His successor, Yongzheng, continued the project, which reached its peak during the reign of the sixth emperor, Qianlong.

In this exhibition, we introduce Qing works with extraordinarily beautiful designs with works by Emile Gallé influenced by them.
