This set is drawn from the Museum's decorative, domestic and architectural glass collection. Dating from antiquity to the present, it encompasses Australian and international objects predominantly from Europe but there is also a good selection of Northern American examples. Extremely broad in scope, the focus is on the last two hundred years and particularly on Australian and international studio glass of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Highlights include Italalian Salviati & Co and the Venice and Murano Glass Company selection from the Melbourne International exhibition of 1880-1881, Scandinavian modern glass, Crown Corning tableware (1920-1979), carnival glass and a small but significant selection of architectural stained glass windows and panels.
