The Yunwai Lou Collection of Ancient Glass and Antiquities


The Yunwai Lou collection of glass and antiquities may be regarded as a hidden treasure in the heart of New York. It comprises a good number of remarkable and rare objects that rival works in major international collections. The superb glass collection ranges from Greek core-formed vessels to Roman blown glass and Islamic pieces. The antiquities include examples of Egyptian, Cypriot, and Etruscan art, as well as Greek vases, bronzes, and sculpture,  and a collection of Roman silver.
