Zorn's Silver Collection
Zorn's Silver Collection comprises more than 400 items. Although the content is mainly Swedish there are also articles from Germany and Norway together with a few examples from Denmark and England. The Zorn Museum opened the Silver Cabinet in May 2003 where in a permanent exhibition a magnificent era of silver history is on display with the emphasis on fantastic baroque drinking vessels and salvers.
A large quantity of aquavit beakers, goblets and tankards have been moved from Zorngården to the museum. In Zorn's time these were placed on the attractive dinner table and with them many toasts were pronounced when the shining silver was lifted to famous lips.
Also on show in the Silver Cabinet are articles of Etruscan gold, Emma Zorn's jewellry and Anders Zorn's distinctions for art and other official awards. The magnificent gold medal made in 1920 by Carl Eldh to honour the Zorns is unprecedented. It is the largest gold medal ever to be struck in Sweden and its diameter is 11.5cm. It is made of 23 carat gold and weighs no less than 1.33 kilograms.
