Victoria and Albert Museum

The world’s greatest museum of art and design

The V&A's glass collection, largely housed in Room 131, is the most comprehensive in Europe. The collection has expanded considerably since the opening of the main Glass Gallery in 1994, with major additions of British, continental, antipodean and, especially, American glass art.

We urgently need your help to raise the £5,000,000 it will cost for the V&A to acquire four Renaissance angels cast for the tomb of Cardinal Wolsey and later in the possession of Henry VIII.
