Ceramics, Glass, Wood, Paper

“Ceramics, glass, wood, paper” collection of the museum consists of 2306 exhibits. Most of them belong to the early 19th-late 20th century. The most ancient ceramic products were created in the Bronze Age and found during archaeological excavations in the Kultepe area in Nakhchivan. Among the best specimens of the ancient period (4th century BC-3rd century AD) are archaeological artifacts, which were found in Mingachevir, Sheki, Gakh, Shamakhi and Oghuz. Also housed in the collection are rare artifacts of the early and late Middle Ages from Julfa, Barda, Shamakhi, and the Palace of the Shirvanshahs in Baku.

The collection includes products made in the porcelain factories of Kuznetsov, and contemporary original works on glass, wood, and ceramic. One of the collection’s most valuable pieces is the group of sketches of author carpets, graphic tables with traditional carpet motifs, and compositions by the People’s Artist of Azerbaijan Latif Karimov.
