The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s American Wing—reopened this spring after two years of construction and renovation, the Museum’s unparalleled collections of American ceramics, sculpture, stained glass, architectural elements, silver, pewter, glass, and jewelry will finally be seen in all their glory. Installed in the balcony galleries in an integrated chronological sequence, the silver display, beginning with the colonial period on the east side and continuing into the 20th century on the west, includes the work of such familiar names as Paul Revere, Jr., and Tiffany & Company.
