Vessels and pots

  • Three pots for coffee and tea from the museum's collection
    Pots in the collection Steffen Wesselvold Holden

This small display of vessels from the collection demonstrates examples of Oriental influence on European traditions, along with more familiar types of vessels: for wine, beer, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. Some are exquisitely ornamental, others more demure. The vessels span from a perfect marriage of form and function, to the useless, merely hinting at its original function.
