Collection of Russian silver artworks from the 16th – early 20th centuries from the museums of Arkhangelsk.

Most part of the exposition is ecclesiastical items: embossed icon frames and their fragments – venets ( an applied halo on an oklad) and tsats (crescent-shaped pectoral decorations), as well as church plate – chalices, ostensoria, and lampions. There is also a not less valuable collection of household items from the 19th – early 20th centuries, that decorated home interiors: a writing set, candle-sticks, small vases, salt cellars, candy dishes, napkin rings. A collection of jewellery and accessories is an interesting addition to the exhibition.
