Quantcast
Folding a Water Lily Napkin - Vienna Circa 1780

The superb Sachsen-Teschen Dinner Service on display in the exhibition Vienna Circa 1780: An Imperial Silver Service Rediscovered was last shown at the beginning of the twentieth century. More than three hundred wine coolers, tureens, cloches, candelabra, candlesticks, dozens of plates, porcelain-mounted cutlery, and other kinds of tableware embodying Viennese Neoclassicism represent the splendor of royal dining during the ancien régime. In conjunction with the exhibition, Joan Sallas demonstrates folding a "water lily" napkin for the exhibition.

The exhibition is made possible by the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation.
