The Silver Museum displays the Medici's Treasure, the jewels and the most precious objects once belonged to the Lords of Florence.
The museum, opened in the late 19th century, is located on the ground floor of the Pitti Palace, in the summer apartments of the Medici court, sumptuously decorated with baroque frescoes.
It shows the huge collection of precious objects once belonged to the Grand Dukes of Tuscany, with later additions coming from the ancient Gems' Cabinet of the Uffizi, from the collection of jewels belonged to Anna Maria Luisa de’ Medici, from the Treasure of the prince-bishops of Salzburg and from the Treasure of San Lorenzo in Florence.
The core of the collection is a group of sixteen vases in semi-precious stones once belonged to Lorenzo the Magnificent, products of classical, Byzantine, Venetian and even Persian workshops, with gilded silver frames made by Florentine goldsmiths of the 15th entury.
The rooms on the ground floor house pieces of furniture in semi-precious stones, reliquaries, vases in semi-precious stones and rock crystal, ambers and ivories. The mezzanine rooms display silverware, cameos and above all jewels, as well as curious objects such as ostrich eggs, shells and coconuts.
