Explore a world of magnificent craftsmanship and opulent artifacts from the Historic Bethlehem vault! Hand-painted china, Annie Kemerer’s most decorative glass pieces, textiles embroidered with gold thread, Bohemian gold-enameled glassware, and delicate decorative artifacts are on display amongst artwork hung in gilded frames and metallic mirrors. With hundreds of artifacts on view that span four centuries, get an intimate look at how the concept of luxury has changed and evolved over time. Test your taste levels with our “Lux or Faux” booklet and see if you can determine which pieces on display are true luxuries versus the frauds.
