Description

The West Norway Museum of Decorative Art presents a permanent exhibition of works by Bergen goldsmiths.

The museum is the repository for Norway’s largest private collection of Bergen silver, which is presented together with the museum’s own holdings and deposits from other museums.

Bergensian goldsmiths
For centuries Bergen was Norway’s key production site for beautiful and prestigious objects made from gold and silver. These objects represent Norway’s foremost classic handcraft. Here you will find tankards, drinking vessels, goblets, terrines, snuffboxes, silverware, jewellery and other objects from the 16th through 20th cen.

The exhibition
The museum has commissioned Kristin Jarmund Architects to design a ‘magpie’s nest’ of display cases for the objects. An audio guide with discussions about the objects will be available, as well as a database of information about Bergensian silver and gold. Films about the production process will also be shown.
