Modern silver tobacco jars
14 April 2016
On 17th April 2016 the exhibition "Silver art in the Netherlands" opens at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, in which the artistic possibilities of silver are explored along examples of contemporary Dutch designed large silver objects. Our museum has given four tobacco jars in loan. These pots, part of a series of twelve, are modern interpretations of the traditional tobacco jar that are commissioned by mr Peter Becker in 1997. If you like to see these original artworks within the scope of contemporary silver design you can visit the museum in The Hague up to 21 August 2016. A splendid exhibition!
