Glass collection

In line with the domestic nature of the Bagatti Valsecchi displays are the glass pieces in the dining room’s display cabinets. Glass pieces flank majolica plates and footed dishes, creating a closely knit effect in which works of different epochs are freely placed next to each other for a successful decorative effect. The two brothers’ preferences veered toward glass pieces from Murano, whose production represented here covers an ample arc of time from the 15th to the 19th centuries.
