Opulence Rediscovered: The Romanov Liturgical Silver
October 19, 2018 – January 13, 2019
Friday, October 19, 6:00-8:00pm
Join us for wine and hors-d’oeuvres, as we unveil the first exhibition in more than 50 years of a lost masterpiece of Romanov Liturgical Silver. This extraordinary set of Orthodox liturgical implements was made in 1877 as part of the imperial dowry of Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna Romanova (1853-1920), the only surviving daughter of Russian Emperor Alexander II, who married Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, in 1874, and used this opulent silver set in her private chapel in the Clarence House British Royal Residence in London.
Members free, nonmembers $15.
Kindly RSVP by October 15. Call 978.598.5000 x121.
