The only surviving dress worn by Queen Elizabeth I (1533-1603) has gone on display in London in a new museum exhibit.
Also, a glove worn by Queen Elizabeth II at her coronation in 1953 and Charles Dickens’ court suit feature in a new exhibition as well, which showcases 400 years of fine craftmanship in London.
Visitors to the exhibition “Treasures of Gold and Silver Wire” at the Guildhall Art Gallery will be able to see over 200 items — from centuries-old robes to contemporary jewelry — British news service SWNS reported.
The museum is located in the Moorgate area of London.
It is a stone building in a semi-Gothic style “intended to be sympathetic to the historic Guildhall” — which is adjacent and to which it is connected internally, as its website notes.
Catherine Carr with the new exhibit said, “This superb exhibition will showcase the beautiful application of gold and silver wire over the centuries and will appeal to all ages, offering an opportunity to view examples of gold and silver wiredrawing of a caliber unmatched anywhere,” as SWNS noted.
She added, “Visitors to the gallery will be able to put the exhibits in their proper social, cultural and historic contexts, discover the stories connected to them, and marvel at the creativity, attention to detail, patience and technology that went into their design.”
“Treasures of Gold and Silver Wire” is at Guildhall Art Gallery for six weeks until Sunday, Nov. 12, as multiple sources reported.
It opened on Sept. 29.
