"The GRASSI Museum of Applied Art opened in 1874 under the name of “Kunstgewerbemuseum Leipzig” (Museum of Applied Art of Leipzig), and is the second oldest Museum of Applied Art in Germany. With its first-class collection, it counts as one of the leading Museums of Applied Art in Europe. The classical areas of textiles, ceramics and porcelain, furniture, glass, noble and base metals, sculptures made from wood and stone, decorative and practical pewterware, symbolist work, tools and equipment are richly represented. Art nouveau, art déco and functionalism create a profile-defining focus for the collection in virtually all areas. Craftwork and design of the 20th century also depict central key points."
