Quantcast
Folding a Water Lily Napkin at High Speed - 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. Wine coolers, tureens, cloches, candelabra, candlesticks, dozens of plates, porcelain-mounted cutlery, and other kinds of tableware embodying Viennese Neoclassicism, totaling more than three hundred items, 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 (this video is shown at high speed).

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