Room 63: A World of Goods 1450–1600
The Edwin and Susan Davies Gallery
This gallery examines how design ideas were exchanged within and outside Europe. Objects, sometimes specifically designed for the Western market, were imported into Europe, and Islamic and Chinese techniques were imitated by European craftsmen. Exploration, conflict and diplomacy all played a part, with traditional trade relationships with the Islamic world complemented by new markets in the Far East and the New World.
Room 63 is n Level 1 of the V&A South Kensington.
