Intro
Whether Africa, the Far East or the South Seas, the late Pforzheim-based collector couple Eva and Peter Herion travelled many of the world’s countries.
Travelling and getting to know the locals were among their passions, which also included collecting the jewellery created in these disparate regions. After inaugurating the new presentation of parts of the Herion collection in a broader context, Pforzheim Jewellery Museum presents an exhibition where a large number of these objects from the museum’s repository will be shown. The two jewellery enthusiasts’ passion for collecting will also be illustrated by accompanying photos.

Opening day: Thursday, 11 May 2023 from 7 p.m.
