Exhibition: Biscuit?

The exhibtions explores the design of the famous biscuit box made in the Leerdam Glass Factory

It is one of the most famous and best-selling designs of the Leerdam Glass Factory and was designed in 1934 by Jacques Boon (1899-1949). The biscuit box has been in production for more than 50 years: well into the 80s of the 20th century! Many Dutch people know this biscuit box from their childhood, from which they were offered one biscuit with coffee or tea.

The lid knob and the color have been tinkered with quite a bit in those 50 years. In a presentation in the context of “The strength of our Dutch collections” (supported by Vereniging Rembrandt and the Turing Foundation), a variety of versions of this biscuit box with design drawings, rip-offs in earthenware and versions will be shown.

Location: National Glass Museum, Lingedijk 28
Opening hours: Tuesday till Saturday from 10.00 to 17.00 and every Sunday from 12.00 to 17.00.
