Come prepared to be dazzled by this glittering exhibition of jewellery, vessels and small-scale masterpieces from the Imperial Treasury in Vienna, displayed together for the first time in the UK.

See Renaissance and Baroque treasures, all exquisitely fashioned from precious metals, gems, rare stones and other exotic materials.

Designed to demonstrate the incredible wealth and power of the Holy Roman Emperors, these remarkable creations were the pride of the Royal Family and were shown only to select visitors of noble birth.

This unique selection of beautifully crafted jewellery, vessels and other objects is on loan from the renowned ‘Kunstkammer’ collection of the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.
