Virtual Tour of Harvard's Glass Flowers
Special tour of the internationally acclaimed Ware Collection of Blaschka Glass Models of Plants
By special arrangement with the Harvard Museum of Natural History members of the Harvard Club of Fairfield County are invited to attend a private virtual docent guided tour of Harvard’s unique and world famous “Glass Flowers” collection on Tuesday April 26th at 7:00pm. One of Harvard University’s most famous treasures is the internationally acclaimed Ware Collection of Blaschka Glass Models of Plants, better known as the “Glass Flowers." This unique collection was made by Leopold (1822-1895) and Rudolf Blaschka (1857-1939), a father and son team of Czech glass artists. Over fifty years, from 1886 through 1936, the Blaschkas produced 4,300 glass models that represent 780 plant species. The Glass Flowers gallery underwent a historic renovation in 2016, introducing rebuilt, original historic wood and glass display cases, new state-of-the-art lighting, and sophisticated conservation systems.
