Glass in MAS

20/04/2018 - 1/10/2018

At the Visible Storage, you could experience the exquisite glass collection of the MAS Vleeshuis collection.

Within the context of 'Glass in MAS', a group of researchers and engineers took a very close look at the entire glass collection. The manner in which the glass collection was formed was investigated, attempts were made to discover the secrets of the glass and forgeries in the process were tracked down.


Above is a small selection of the fragile beauty (from left to right): a small 16th-century drinking vessel for birds that surfaced during works on the Conscienceplein in Antwerp, a small art nouveau drinking glass from the world-renowned Tiffany & Co. and a 19th-century copy of the highly coveted 16th-century, Venetian winged stem glasswares.


The exhibition 'Glass in MAS' closed on 23.02.2020
