About this artwork

These glasses and fingerbowl are part of a service in the Venetian style commissioned in 1906 by Count Lionel Hirschel de Minerbi for the Ca’ Rezzonico palace in Venice. The service totaled approximately 465 objects. Other glasses from the service are in the British Museum; Brighton Museum and Art Gallery; and the Cannon Hall Museum, Barnsley. The two silver-mounted centerpieces from the service are in the collection of the Corning Museum of Glass (90.2.3) and the Huntington Library and Art Collections (2014.16).
