About

Fans of Bridgerton will feel right at home at In Sparkling Company, which will present the glass objects that delighted the British elite of the 18th century and defined rituals and cultural values of the period. See elaborate tableware, polished mirrors, dazzling lighting devices, and glittering costumes and jewelry. A state-of-the art virtual reality reconstruction will bring to life a glass drawing room, dismantled more than 200 years ago that has been brought back to life through painstaking research.
