Room 70a: Silver Galleries entrance

Silver gallery entrance, room 70a

Room 70a is the entrance to the Silver Galleries which begin in Room 65. At the centre of this room is an electrotype copy by Elkington & Co. of a silver-gilt leopard created originally in 1600. The original is now at the Kremlin in Moscow. Charles 1 sold it with other silver items to the Tsar of Russia in 1627. This copy was made by Elkington in 1884.

Room 70a is on Level 3 of the V&A South Kensington.
