ANCIENT GLASS AT MUSEE DE PICARDIE (AMIENS)

Posted in Uncategorized by Allaire Collection of Glass on March 23, 2020

The Musée de Picardie is the main museum of Amiens and Picardy, at 48 rue de la République. Its collections stretch from prehistory to the 19th century and form one of the largest regional museums in France.  Its building was purpose-built for a regional museum (one of France’s first such buildings) between 1855 and 1867.  The Museum has been recently renovated.   The ancient glass pictured below is from an earlier trip and installations may have been changed.

Verreries Antiques du Musee de Picardie, Georges Dilly Noel Maheo, 1997 is a book in French about this wonderful glass collection.

    Hi, Allaire Collection, Thank you for posting this significant, yet relatively obscure collection of important glass from in and around Amiens. Wishing you good health in these precarious times. Cheers, Rolf Achilles
