We are talking about bottles, glasses, and jugs within the beverage set, as well as serving trays, bowls, candy boxes, perfume bottles and other types of furnishings.
Given that they were produced in glass factories that appeared in the second half of the 19th century and flourished during the 20th century, the audience will have the opportunity to hear the story of the most important moments in the history of glassmaking in the wider area of Yugoslavia.
