The more than 300 objects exhibited give an overview of Hungarian and European glass art. Most of the objects are from the 19th and 20th centuries, yet there are works from earlier ages from Japan, China, Russia and Western-Europe.
The so-called glass-style is presented by more than a dozen Venetian glasses from the turn of the century. Varoius techniques are all represented in the collection. We have blown, carved, colour coated, layered, painted, form-pressed and sand-blasted and flame edged glasses.
Several objects can be linked to famous people, or was once their possession. A finger bowl and a wine glass with the initials of Franz Joseph I., a wine glass with the initials of Nicholas II. and a beer glass from the set of the Serbian King Peter I. Alfréd Hajós, the first Hungarian Olympic medal winner, won a Secession-style Czech ink holder at swimming competition on the lake Balaton. The works of Hungarian glass artists from the 20th century are also exhibited.
