These rooms, which are located on the ground floor of the west wing in the Bergpalais, are the only surviving early classicist interiors of the Saxon court and so greater attention is to be drawn to them. Careful evaluation of historical sources and detailed investigations in the rooms have made it possible to approximately re-create the original furnishings and atmosphere of these interiors. In addition to reconstructed silk satin wall coverings, three original wall tables and sconces will be on display. Outstanding examples of late 18th and early 19th-century craftsmanship from the collection of the Kunstgewerbemuseum will help to illustrate the era of Classicism and its approaches to design.
