"Our Hidden Treasure at Columbia University,” The Silver Collection

Rubinstein, Caroline

Always looking for silver objects and collections to write about has taken me to Europe including France, Belgium, England, and Italy and in United States including San Antonio Museum of Art, Hispanic Society of America (New York), and Columbia University. The collection at Columbia University has many historically important silver objects that were either donated or bequested to King’s College, Columbia College and Columbia University. When inquiring about writing about the University’s collection, I was told “That is our hidden treasure”. A number of these objects are to be discussed in this article.
