Summary / Abstract:

ENTens of thousands of glass articles’ smithereens have been found in the territory of the Lower Castle of Vilnius during archaeological excavations already lasting for more that 20 years. Recently in this territory among plenty of breakage smithereens of two vessels of the 15th-16th centuries were found. That appeared to be a blue glass cup and a rolled gold combined glass cup. Authors of this article reviews their finding, restoration and preparation for exhibiting. Findings of archaeological glass almost always are found in a form of breakage and usually the scale of losses is too large for reestablishing the full appearance of the glass article. At the centre’s of castle research “Lithuanian Castles” division of restoration the breakage of cups has been conserved and prepared for the further restoration process at the Pranas Gudynas’ Centre for Restoration of the Lithuanian Art Museum. Restorers were forced to make decisions on vessels’ forms’ reconstruction and their further exhibiting. Their task was not only to conserve and glue together pieces of archaeological glass in order to perform a partial reconstruction of cups’ forms but also to apply a proper solution for exhibition that would help to reveal their form and would stress the so important historical and artistic values of these findings. Breakage of mazarine glass is a set of fragments of tulip-shaped cup. Because of the scale of losses and the absence of the stem it was decided not to try to reconstruct it. The issue has been resolved by attaching the conserved and glued fragments on a newly produced glass vessel imitating the upper silhouette of the former cup. This glass form has been mounted on a metal tripod forming the awareness of the viewer about the absence of the original stem.Another exhibit restored at the Pranas Gudynas’ Centre for Restoration was an especially ornate cup of combined glass (transparent and mazarine) ornamented with gold spray and dots of enamel. After assembling together all extant fragments it was decided to reconstruct completely only the blue stem and that the upper part should be reestablished only partially. This kind of reconstruction served quite well to reveal cup’s form and ornamentation, the article became rather stable and suitable for putting it on exhibition. Those two restored cups of the 15th-16th centuries from the territory of the Lower Castle of Vilnius will adorn the historical-didactical exposition of the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania.
