Precious metal objects

The museum-reserve collection of precious metals includes more than 1,000 units. The majority of the collection is presented by a hoard of Russian silver coins of the XVI century that was found near the Church of the Ascension and Russian coins of various value belonging to the XVI-XVIII centuries. Frameworks of Russian icons dating back to XV-XIX centuries are notable for a high artistic skill. Silversmiths could process the surface of a metal object the way it revealed the extraordinary beauty of a metal.
