Silverware Chamber

On the fourth floor in the former safe room, which has been transformed into the Silverware Chamber, is a display of items from the museum’s precious metals collection, covering the period from the late 17th century until the early 20th century. The items were made in the Russian Empire, including the Baltics and Europe.

The small exhibition provides an insight into what sacred, decorative or daily use silverware once belonged to the people of Latvia, churches, public and military organizations. There are artistically high-quality designed cups, tableware, relics, awards, jewellery, seal rings and seals. The display of the Silverware Chamber also includes the liturgical vessels of churches.
