Commissioned by Prussia’s Frederick I, presented as a gift to Russia’s Peter the Great, and installed by Catherine the Great in her summer palace, the “Amber Room” was a testament to the enduring value placed upon this prized Baltic gem. The Smithsonian’s amber collection at the National Museum of National History, and the beautiful amber products on these pages, showcase the translucent beauty of Baltic amber and the skill of the Polish artisans who transform it.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
