Not every purchase supported by the Rembrandt Association costs hundreds of thousands or millions of euros. This sublime carafe, which Andries Copier designed for the Glasfabriek Leerdam, cost 1,500 euros. It was offered for sale on the markt-plaats.nl social auction website, but attracted so much interest that the owner got in touch with the Nationaal Glasmuseum, which replied immediately. The Rembrandt Association paid half the price. You could say that fewer than thirteen members made that possible with their annual contribution.
Acquisition supported by the Vereniging Rembrandt, thanks in part to its P.H. Soeters Fonds voor 20ste-eeuwse glaskunst
