Clothes & Jewellery

The last room of the Schaudepot of the Cultural History Collection is devoted to textiles and jewellery: with around 6,100 rugs, tapestries, blankets, duvets, table linen, shoes, fans, bags, and women’s, men’s, and children’s fashion, our textile collection is the largest group within the entire Cultural History Collection. Of particular significance are approx. 750 period costumes from the sixteenth to the twentieth century. Our collection of jewellery comprises 1,500 bracelets, bangles, rings, brooches, necklaces, pendants, lockets, earrings, hatpins, hairpins, decorations and medals from the sixteenth to the twentieth century. The collection in the Schaudepot is currently focused on modern costume jewellery. 

If you would like to view the second part of the Schaudepot, we would ask you to pass through the following historic rooms, at the end of which you will find the Multimedia Collections.
