Decorative and applied art

The history of the collections of decorative and applied art begins in 1895, when the young Russian Museum was awarded the Mikhailovsky Palace. Its former owners left part of the palace decor behind them when they left, including the entire heritage of Karl Rossi. Fresh acquisitions were made in the late 1920s and early 1930s. Back then, the museum already possessed a fine collection of porcelain, glass and furniture. This was added to by the unique trellises of St Petersburg and a wide collection of precious metals.Not many Russian museums today can present Russian applied art as diversely and fully as the Russian Museum.
