Have you ever been on holiday and spotted a museum about which you knew very little but didn’t have time to explore? Well KCWC Antiques and Design has solved your problem with this our shared BADA series – a winter Zoom traveloque of four lectures (priced individually) taking you to some of the smallest jewel like collections. Join the charming and knowledgable Nicholas Merchant as we explore some treasuries in multiple cities world wide.

We will start in Dresden with the Green Vault. Located in the Residential Palace, the Green Vault is a baroque “fairy kingdom” chock full of treasures and itself a work of art. Open to the public for almost 300 years, it belonged to the Saxon elector, duke and later Polish King August the Strong who built it between 1723-30 with the aim of sharing his most valuable treasures with the public. Today the museum showcases the historical Green Vault rooms in all their Baroque splendour but also new gallery space where individual pieces are ingeniously displayed for particular examination.

Come meet us virtually in Dresden!
