The collections of glassware and Limoges painted enamels acquired by Sir Richard Wallace may at first glance seem unlikely bedfellows. Yet both are 'arts of fire' and both are 'vitreous art', albeit with rather different aesthetic ends. Moreover, the collections are, broadly speaking, contemporaneous in date of manufacture, from the late 15th to the 17th centuries. Much of the exquisite glassware in the collection was made in Venice or elsewhere in the Venetian style (faon de Venise).
