Peter Bauhuis. A Tutiplén
Peter Bauhuis in abundance! On view from 8 May on at the Museo Nacional de Cerámica y Artes Suntuarias González Martí in Valencia.
There is plenty of Peter Bauhuis to discover in his ABECEDARIUM.
In 1875 Moses Tobias Wetzlar moved to Munich and opened his own silverware shop. In Munich uppermiddleclass circles, a handcrafted silver tea and coffee service was de rigueur. That is the context in which the M.T. Wetzlar silver should be viewed. With this exhibition, this significant Jewish business in Munich receives the recognition it deserves. Alongside the family and company’s history, a large amount of silver objects as well as the Council Chamber cutlery produced in the M.T. Wetzlar workshop is presented.
